It was nice, the directions on the map took us to this sketchy dead end road with lots of stray kitties and a locked fence.. I never found the "oak dale" trail head, but I just drive the extra 20 minutes to Knights Ferry and started there. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL I had my dog with me and we went in the morning, it was about noon when we left and it was just starting to get crowded.. There's so much room to wander off and enjoy the outside. We wandered off the main trail and hiked in a couple rough spots, but the river was in plain sight the whole time.. Loved it, free parking and it also had a historical feel with all the plaques and houses to look at!

Aneasy get away, great for the whole family. You can customiz the length of time on the river by your put-in point and the river flow. Be on the river by 10 am for best results. Easy access everywhere. It is a safe river. Wear a life vest. If the water temperature Is below 60 degrees, wear a wet suit. IT IS A VERY CLEAN RIVER... PLEASE KEEP IT THAT WAY. Remove your trash. Have fun!

Knights Ferry never fails to delight. Took a day trip to watch huge salmon from the vehicle bridge as they spawn in the gravel beds of the Stanislaus River below. Upstream above the historic covered bridge and grist mill ruins, we hiked the trail meandering along the river on a sunny breezy fall day, saw an awesome pair of peregrine falcons glide leisurely and low over the river heading downstream.
