From Chestnut Yard to Gambetta is a 3.2 mile, easy, slight downhill gradient with parking available at both trailheads. At Chestnut yard the remains of the railroad's operations are still visible. As the trail follows Chestnut Creek the valley becomes much narrower. This section features a spectacular two-hundred foot long, curved bridge with beautiful views of the creek and surrounding hills. At Gambetta, take a little time to explore and discover some of the rich heritage of the area.
