The trail gets its name from La Honda Avenue, a one-block-long street between Barrett Ave and Aqua Vista Drive. The trail starts at the intersection of La Honda and Aqua Vista and continues in the same direction as its namesake street. Interestingly, across from where La Honda Ave starts at Barrett is the top of the Barrett to Tassajara Trail, number 5 on out list. The three segments actually form a direct route from the Heights to Tasajara Park.
For those of you interested in going a little farther afield, from either end of the trail proceed up hill to Arlington. Across the street between Aqua Vista Drive and Claremont is Aqua Vista Road. After a dog-leg to the left at Richmond Ave, Aqua Vista Rd dead-ends at a trail that leads into Wildcat Canyon Regional Park. The trail crosses Wildcat Creek at a ford but when the water is low it is a fairly easy route (Your experience may vary. This is a wildland trail and should be approached as such. There are some steep bits, and a very dry trail can be just as slippery as a wet one. As always, be careful and look out for poison oak. )
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
