Coppertone and and I hiked most of Briones Crest Trail and then included Valley Trail and some of Old Briones Road Trail.  We had intended to do all of the crest trail, but apparently missed a trail marker and ended up going down Valley Trail by mistake.

Watch where you step on most of the trails!  Cattle are still run on the land and there are cow patties all over the place.  On Valley Trail there were even quite a number of them on the trail itself.  They slowly ambled off out of the way as we would approach.
