  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Very cool trail for a day hike , scenary is beautiful , my family enjoyed it.
  • Beautiful. Very easy trail. The water fall was so spectacular. Will be going again
