Short, pretty hike. Lots of small ups and downs, but easy. We walked along the river on the way back.

Good bike trail but little rocky.

It's beautiful

This is a nice hike if you don't want to drive too far from Sacramento. Lots to see along the way. If you veer off toward the water you come upon an old bridge and footings from 1918. We took a nice dip in the river and a bald eagle flew right over us!

Good trail allot of up and downs should be a medium trail no real good parking.

Not EASY for mountain biking. I would say moderate to hard.

Fun little hike. The water was low which exposed the bridge so we were able to do the loop all the way around. No rattlesnakes spotted :)

Good for exercise and not too hard. Has a small creek that you have to hop over at the start. Not much when I was there but I was there at one of the detest times of the year. Not sure what it would be like earlier in the year. Has a lot of shade so nice for hot days.

There is no waterfall. This trail is Darrington Trail / Salmon Falls Trail. It is confused with Salmon Creek Falls which is located in Big Sur. Luckily I was able to ask people before passing mile 1.

where I fish love this place

The water was nice and calm. Not a lot of people. Hike wasn't that difficult. Didn't see or hear ANY rattlesnakes and we even had a dog with us and a hater of snakes.
