Juan Bautista de Anza Trail

The Juan Bautista de Anza Trails in Atascadero are beautiful, but can be a little confusing. You can connect to the South loop by parking at the same trailhead as Jim Green and starting out on the very same trail and turning left and going under the tracks (see pics below). The North and South trails do not connect (unless you walk along the Salinas river without water which may be possible but I've never tried it). You can access the North trails from various trailheads on Sycamore Road and then on Ferro Carril Rd. You can connect the south most part of the north trail to the AMWC roads and then to the north trail as long as the Salinas river has little or no water.
