Great walk not hike. Great views of river. Nothing steep. Watch out for bikes.

I hike this trail often. It's a lovely, shady slight grade up the Stanislaus River. There's frequent water access so you can cool your toes. In the summer, I access from Fraser Flat. Access from Old Strawberry Road in the winter for a beautiful snowshoe trail. This is an easy-to-moderate hike. You will have a very slight grade (former railroad track) up then down (or down then up, depending on your approach). There are no steep climbs whatsoever, though.
