Blackrock Trailhead to Casa Vieja Meadows is a 3.8 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Springville, CA that features a river and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, birding, and horses and is accessible from June until October. Dogs and horses are also able to use this trail.
Ample parking for vehicles - from cars to horse vans. Two stall vault toilet. Many corrals for stabling horses. Ramp for transferring horses to and from trucks.
Easy navigation - well marked at the trailhead, and a very well maintained trail. At the top there is plenty of parking, a horse area & a campground. There are two small picturesque meadows on the descent and most of the trail is shaded by trees. The burned trees from a large fire are predominantly below at the Jordan Hot Springs area another several miles past Casa Vieja. The meadow itself has a very neat meandering stream that the trail crosses at the lower end of the meadow. Good day hike or easy pack hike for novice/younger hikers. The stream is full of small golden trout which while fun to fish for are not for keeping! Handle with care...
Great trail and camping at Casa Vieja Meadow for kids. Small size trout in meadow creek.
this hike is awsome in the early summer when the meadow is real green and its a fun family hike and its down hill when you start out and its like that all the way to the meadow but hiking back out is up hill.
Trail in good condition. Used by hikers and horses. Easy downhill hike to meadow; moderate uphill hike out. Casa Vieja is a beautiful big green meadow! Smaller meadows along trail. Trail and meadow very boggy in parts in Spring after snowmelt. Wildflowers. Ample parking and stabling for horses at trailhead.
