Rides along essentially a dirt road all the way to the dam. Very wide path and relatively flat. Not really a "mountain bike" ride, more of a pleasure ride that allows for looking around and enjoying the surroundings. If you continue past the dam area and across the cattle grate, the path continues following around the dam and then starts tracking along the river. Path gets a little rougher at some points (more like 4x4 driving than dirt road). I took the path all the way to the point that it departs from the river (bends to the right - you can see it on the AllTrails map with GPS). Made for a nice long ride and the flowing river was nice too. Overall I'll do this again when I'm looking for a relaxing ride with no technical riding whatsoever.Cory Bohannon on Lyons Dam1 month agoTrail was easy and beautiful. A pack of deer ran across our paths along the way was really cool. Wide path. Never an issue of getting lost. Great path for mountain biking of u choose to do so.Stephan Lambert on Lyons Dam2 months agoHad a great bicycle ride not to hard not to easy, I would do it again.Shannon Wren on Lyons Dam2 months agohikingWater level is really high and the dam water was being released it was nice to see.Deborah S. on Lyons Dam5 months agomountain bikingShelly Jachetta on railroad grade - East Ave5 months agoThis is a short, nice walk. A couple of weird spots where you're kind of in someone's back yard, but it's woodsy and pretty.Thomas Hansen on railroad grade - East Ave1 year agowalkingAdded this to my daily exercise routine. Well maintained. Follows the TUD ditch for a bit.David Heldt on Lyons Dam1 year agoJuly 19, 2015. Trail is in great shape. Several patches of shade along the way shrouded in Redwoods, Pines, Firs and Dogwoods. Beautiful distant views. Nothing but peace and quiet. Zero poison oak. Best trail out of Twain Harte.Joe Bayflyer on Lyons Dam1 year agohikingHike along Ditch to Lyons Dam ...Joe Bayflyer on Lyons Dam1 year agohikingJohn Thompson on Lyons Dam1 year agohikingThis a nice walk. Of course it is the old rail road grade so it's flat and easy to traverse. No fear of getting lost on this one. The reward is reaching Lyons Lake which is very pretty. The trail is good for someone who is wanting a greater challenge in distance without something too rugged. As a matter of fact getting to the lake can be a little boring and then returning the same way you came can be more boring. But there are few 10 mile treks this close to civilization and it is worth exploring. This trail is perfect for a mountain bike ride even for kids. Bring water and food because it is a long way in and out.CR Dom on Lyons Dam1 year agoDid the 2.4 mile hike down hill from SR. 108 park at closed scales and walk down. Gravel all the way with daughter on bike. Walk back up is a climb but flat wide rodeway.Melissa J. on Lyons Dam2 years agohikingGreat hiking and fishing. Easy trail for all ages. Took our Great Dane pup and he had a great time. Beautiful views.Fat Badger on Lyons Dam2 years agohikingEasy trail, great for running, hiking, biking. Lake is owned by PG&E so no swimming. Swimming with caution in river above lake is permitted. In winter, lake freezes over toward inlet. Do NOT try to cross the ice. Fishing for planter Trout is great and watching the Eagles fly is spectacular. Overall a great trail. Access from South Fork Rd., HWY108, or Confidence/ Middle Fork Rd's...Fat Badger on Sonora Pass Scenic Drive:...3 years agoscenic drivingTruly the gateway to adventure! Whether from the east or from the west, this scenic mountain pass offers everything. If you're able, Sonora Pass by snowmobile is the way to go. Pack stations offer endless miles of horse trails. Also through Chipmunk Valley rock climbing and unbelievable vista hikes. Fishing and hunting opportunities are around every corner.
