  • Easy flat (east trail) out and back trail with lots of bridges and a few nice vistas and lots of fall color. 
  • I was in town for a reunion and found this trail by doing a google search. I am so glad I did! I brought my camera and took somewhere around 150 photos of this trail. It's a wonderfully maintained tra...  more »
  • A well-maintained trail, wheelchair accessible. Two trails, really one on each side of Highway 49 just before the old 49er bridge. The ramp down to Rush Creek, although now closed, is a great hour of ...  more »

  • Lots of creaky/gappy wooden bridge walkways over varying heights. If you don't like heights, find another trail. Interesting walk but I am not a fan of the bridges.
  • Easy and mostly flat trails, grate for day hike or a family walk. Spectacular scenery, water falls, creeks, long and short bridge to walk across from, and you get to over see the yuba river and the road below in certain sections. Well worth it.
  • One of my all time favorite hikes. It's great to run on. Tons of lush green areas with ferns and trees. Also several catwalks with great views. Disabled accessible for huge portions of the hike. Shaded so bring your bug spray.
  • This is a pretty run down and old trail. But that being said it's still beautiful. It is a super easy hike and mostly flat. There was literally no one else on the trail besides my group when I went. This is a gem because the bridges here are pretty scenic.
  • Very cool trail for a day hike , scenary is beautiful , my family enjoyed it.
