Beginning in the high country of Yosemite National Park, the Merced River makes a headlong rush through glacially-carved canyons, rugged mountains and foothills to the San Joaquin Valley. Multiple access points allow skilled whitewater enthusiasts to challenge the rapids at your own pace. Enjoy a day of fishing before gathering around the campfire to cook up the day's catch at McCabe Flat, Willow Placer or Railroad Flat campgrounds.

The entire family hiked part of this one yesterday before we got drenched on reason and had to head out. It's a nice easy trail along the river with lots of milage. We will probably hit it again someday with just the hubby and I so we can put in the miles on this one.
