I would try to compare the log’s bark, if it is still present, with surrounding trees (color, texture, etc). Even a quick observation of the surrounding forest will narrow the possible species down to a few, or at the very least whether conifers or hardwoods dominate.
Quercus agrifolia, (coast live oak).
It was a dead log with no foliage :( I intend on going back to the trail within the next couple of days though, can you tell me what are some characteristics that I should look for? I am assuming that it is not a conifer at this point because the ground litters have minimal needles from my vague recollection.
Do you know what kind of wood it was growing on (conifer or hardwood; species)?
