Starting at the Whiskeytown Visitor Center, drive south on Kennedy Memorial Drive towards Whiskeytown Dam. The road forks. Take the left fork which becomes Paige Bar Road. Do not take the right fork over the dam. The trailhead and parking lot are about one mile farther on the left, across from Peltier Valley Road.

Easy hike with a few short, rocky sections with a decent incline. Beautiful green foliage, outstanding panoramic views of Whiskeytown Mountains. Takes about 2 hours at a leisurely pace.

Pretty easy hike, not much shade in the summer heat. The old mine shaft is fenced off but you can get close enough to feel the creepy factor.

Great hike with some amazing views. Some steep terrain at times. Couldn't imagine mountain biking the trail unless you rode the opposite of the suggested direction..taking a left instead of a right at the head of the trail due to the topography.

Good trail for a quick ride. Has some elevation gain. Popular with horse riders as well
