Limestone Canyon Trail is a 10.6 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Silverado, CA that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as difficult. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Horses are also able to use this trail.
Lots of steep elevation gains - be prepared. Take lots of water, and wear a hat. Rangers were on the trail by bike, foot, car and horse, to be assured no one needed assistance.
This was an easy 7 mile hike. We took limestone canyon trail which was pretty flat to the sinks. Enjoyed the view and snacks!
What a beautiful nature preserve.
Only open once a month.
Great area of the state. Home to large % of animals and plants on the entire planet.
Docent led trail ride. The trail is closed to the public except for these rides and then one day a month open to the public. The docent led ride was nice as we were the only group on the trail except for one that was heading out on foot. The docent led rides keep you at a walk. Decent ride and wildlife abounds. Wasn't my favorite trail, but not bad.
Very intense beginning! Just when u think your at the top, your not! But worth seeing the sinks and the hike back was a nice mellow downhill stroll.
Two words. Effing Brutal. I suggest living in the alps for 3 months before doing this hike :)
