I started at the Ranger Station taking the Manzanita Trail up to Stagecoach Trail then down to the Confluence. I prefer this hike in colder weather because the sun does shine most of the day on this side of the river.
Great hike! Beautiful views and great trails if you want to take a dip or just enjoy the water!
The first part of the hike is straight up hill, which is a nice challenge. The rest of the hike gains in elevation moderately. Nice view of the confluence area, but the end of the hike is anti climactic, with no views. It's a nice hike that is partly shaded. Parking can be difficult to find if you don't get there early enough.
nothing much to write about
Decent trail with a nice steady incline. Some good views of the No-Hands bridge and the confluence area. I took the Mossy Rock side trail and went up to the Foresthill bridge and back down on the Bridge View Trail which was way more interesting than the main route that is mapped.
Very easy fire trail. Great for young kids but a little boring.
easy hike for everyone.
Night hike, it's good for the soul!
Enjoyed the trail, found some geocaches and loved the big bridge.
not so much a beginner trail if you ask me. went with my family and they ended up walking their bikes up as it was pretty challenging to pedal up. coming back down is ok but make sure you have some great brakes.
A decent trail but there are much better ones only a couple hundred yards down the road. Would not do this again.
Great trail for people of all levels, my 3 and 5 yr olds were able to do most of the trail. To be clear, it's 2 miles out and 2 miles back.
Be sure to pay for parking or you'll incur a $72 ticket from the Parks Dept.
Easy short trail with nice views of the confluence area and mountain quarries railroad bridge. Also nice for a change to have a trail going downhill on the way back.

This trail is easy to find and well maintained. However, it's not really along the river for so long and it's a relatively uninteresting trail with some views of the confluence from higher up. Just regular shrub brush and typical plants for the Auburn area. What hasn't been stated is that the trail is entirely uphill for the whole trail and downhill for the return; which is what makes it more of a medium to difficult trail depending on your abilities. I did see some runners on the trail so it's all relative to abilities. All in all, very nice trail for a short hike and a nice chat with you fellow hiker.
Easy trail for beginners. Lots of birds and butterflies. Red dirt roads will get you nice and dusty. I prefer lake clementine trail across the way but more difficult and longer.
