Great trail! Beautiful scenery, winding along the American River. Well worth it :-)

This hike was AWESOME! Definitely not for someone who isn't in shape the hike back up is deceptively hard. Also the water is very high right now and crossing the waterfall is not safe for elderly/children! Lots of butterflies and blue sky!

Beautiful! The waterfalls were to dangerous to cross to complete the trail.

Moderate difficulty. Varied terrain which was nice. A few small water crossings. Easy to find the trailhead. Gorgeous views

Narrow trail at some spots but a GREAT workout as well as amazing views and water passages

Great hike. Beautiful views. Narrow passages on steep cliff edges were scary at times.

The trail is located behind the Iowa bar and grill! We passed it a few times due to no gps service and arrived to late to hike the full trail but locals are super friendly and helpful and the trail was beautiful! Keep in mind it's pretty steep going down and a little snow along the way also it gets pretty dense along the way :D

Great hike. I love the river views.

Short trail with a breath taking view. Kinda steep, wouldn't recommend for small children

We hike in every December (before any low snow), to see the bizzillions of lady bugs nesting in the foliage at the trails end. That's right, the red ground cover is alive!

Wow! I've done the other side of Steven's Trail close to 15 times, but never this side. Such a blast, crazy beautiful, lots of waterfalls, dog friendly. I was the only one on the trail. The road getting there is pretty sketchy so watch out and drive slow. Penny the trail dog will follow you the whole time :)
