The first part of this hike was not pretty. Lol. And most of the trails were streams. If you want to go after it rains, be sure to have water proof hiking boots.
The view from the point does not disappoint. It's beautiful. There is a disc golf course here so watch your head. :)
Upper Bidwell Park is one of Chico's many attractions. While the trails will not pose a challenge for any serious hiker, the park is a fun place to explore. There are many different routes that offer a variety of experiences. There are several different swimming holes you can hike to as well. This place is more of a recreation area for locals, but if you are visiting Chico or any neighboring cities, it is definitely worth the trip.
For my first true hike I enjoyed it very much. Had some challenging spots but again I am a beginner at hiking. I am 52 and my 27 year old son ( who trail runs ) was with me. We went in 3 miles and came back out. Took 2 hrs 53 min. Definitely will hike this one again.
