Hikers are rewarded with stunning views of Fitch Mountain, the Mayacama Mountains, and the Russian River.

Hikers familiar with the Yorty Creek hike may experience a sense of déjà vu on this rugged road in Cloverdale. We’ll encounter few, if any, vehicles on this 4 – 5 mile out & back rural hike on rolling, shady terrain.
