Upper Creek Trail is located near Julian, California. The trail is great for biking and starts off near a creek and continues through a grassy meadow with lots of cows enjoy the local fare. The trail is mostly flat with a steep incline to the top which has great views of the surrounding area. The cows seem plenty gentle but you get the feeling you are invading their space. Afterwards, head in to Julian for some apple pie! A great reward after a pretty great bike ride.
