  • Great place to hike! Wonderful trails! Very clean no trash on the grounds! Fantastic views!
  • Beautiful trail to come and check out. It is ADA accessible with beautiful views of the mountains and the South Yuba River. We did the east side and it was a nice easy 2-3 mile walk.
  • Ez hike. Beautiful river run through. Kids not recommended due to unappropriated adult have no clothes on (private part not covered) at the beach.
  • 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.
