It was the first beautiful day we've had in a long time and this hike with my 3 year old grandson was just what we needed!
This trail 4 miles go and back it nive view
Beautiful hike & run along the Middle Fork of the American River. River was swollen, and some erosion of the trail made for a couple dangerous spots.
Had an awesome time hiking. Weather was fantastic. Great time with friends and the park staff very personal.
Will most definitely go again.
the loop part of the trail is closed right notr. beautiful views! it was a bit hot and there was some shade on the trail but we found ourselves wishing there was a bit more. we'd rate this as between easy and moderate as far as difficulty as there we're a few spots that might be a bit scary for kids or those who fear nights.
Nice scenic overlook. Easy out & back.
A pretty easy trail with a few nice views of the river. The main route that is mapped has you walking along the main road for the way back which does provide some decent views from the many turnouts you'll walk past.
fun place. weird parking set up. you park on the road walk over to the Ranger Station and pay. walk back to your car to put receipt on window. Then you can get on your way.
