Some areas of hard walking on small rocks but well worth it once you get to the river.

This trail is very badly marked. I saw one sign and ended up on fire access roads with no idea where the trail was. I looked for trail maps on the City of Fair Oaks web site but could not find one. I ended up getting so lost I could not find my way back to the parking lot. Luckily, the Sherrif/Ranger was very helpful and kind, found me and gave me a ride back to my car.

Nice trek for me and the dogs. I got "off trail" and a nice guy pointed us back in the right direction. River was fun for the dogs to dip. :)

Hot, but great trails. River access was an awesome find! Kids did great & strollers made it.

This is a nice trail for beginning hikers. The trails are well marked with some off trail areas with a bit more challenge but nothing overt daunting.

Today out with my dog on the trail I saw a large lynx crossing the path about 35 feet in front of me. He was so quite my dog never saw him. It was incredible.

Lots of great little trails to meander off and still find your way back! The river was gorgeous!! Great way to start our day before the craziness of family time!

easy quick hike with nice quiet spots to sit by the river and not be bothered. the main trail is easy but going off the path makes it a little more fun.

My daughter and I did the hike and enjoyed it. We got off the trail a little but otherwise, we had a good time. The scenery was okay and the walk was easy, even for us beginners.
