Creek Crossing

Orchard Trails
Unfortunately it appears most, if not all, of the fruit trees in Jack's orchards have long since died. (Photo by Austin Explorer)
Wet and muddy
Coppertone stands in a small stream that crossed the path. Frequent stream crossings and muddy bogs here and there caked our boots with mud. (Photo by Austin Explorer)

Trail View
Some service road trails are fairly wide and well maintained. (Photo by Austin Explorer)
Mini groves of Redwoods can be found in numerous spots along the trails. Sometimes the trees gather in dense clumps. (Photo by Austin Explorer)

Pig Palace Pens

Pig Palace
The elaborate pig pen, aka the Pig Palace, was designed by Jack to save on manpower and provide for happier and healthier pigs. (Photo by Austin Explorer)
Winery Ruins
Looking through an archway at the winery ruins. Beyond lay a working vineyard on private property. Farther back at the tree line, the forest and park land continues onto the steeper slopes. (Photo by Austin Explorer)
