Sycamore Grove has one of the largest stands of native sycamore trees in California. This particular trail leads to the back part of the park. It follows the original wine harvest road that was used to access a gravitation fed grape crusher by the Smith Family more than a hundred years ago. You will pass by foundations of the second home site of the Smith family, then climb to the highest point in the park for an expansive view of the valley from Livermore to Mt. Diablo to Danville. The park is home to a variety of wildlife, so be sure to bring your camera!
