The trailhead is located at the Bear Creek Staging Area of Briones Regional Park. This beautiful, partially shaded trail takes park patrons along a creek through the heart of Briones Regional Park. Special features include wildlife viewing and seasonal wildflowers. It is accessible year-round. More information can be found on the park website at https://www.ebparks.org/parks/briones.
This trail is nearly entirely navigable on Google Maps as a road, so anyone who is concerned about their ability to make it to the end can check the whole thing beforehand to help them make a decision. Here is a link to the "street" view of the trailhead, which can be followed until it turns off toward the Santos Trail, which is too steep to be considered accessible in my opinion.
