Bridge Creek Trail is easy to hike on the way to Bridge Creek Historic Site, but after that it passes through Bridge Creek several times and some scrambling is required to get to Maple Falls. There are two notable areas where fossilized mollusc shells are visible on Bridge Creek Trail, one small area in the cliff next to the trail, and one area in the bed of Bridge Creek as the trail first crosses it. Both locations are about half a mile away from where the trail begins at Loma Prieta Grade.
