We only did the first 1.5 and it was very steep. Bring water for you and your pets! No views in that section of the trail.

Fun little ride.

Trail is well maintained and safe. No inclines and can be walked leisurely. No issues with sharing. Plenty of residential parking available on La Riviera.

Fun little trail for the family. My 7yo daughter made it on her 16” Barbie bike. Down side were all the people who refuse to leash their dogs. Next time I’m going to hit the little bastard and see how my rockshox suck up a cockapoo instead of crashing to avoid hurting it.

Great walk run bike

As a local, this is one of my favorite walks. Shady in the summer, beautiful in the fall, can be muddy in the winter. Dogs, horses and even lamas have been present on these trails. Near the Empire Mine Entrance is a clean bathroom that can come in handy. I’d recommend this trail to people visiting Grass Valley for sure.

Very nice falls and trails however there are lack of guidance signs to get to the starting points and also to the destination points... people may get lost if they do have maps or offline navigation, trail does not get signal.

Good trail

It is a difficult trail coming out but the rewards of the swimming holes at the bottom are worth it!
Just take a lot of water with you and I don’t recommend doing in high temps and much of the trail is uncovered.

Great easy trail! Was shaded most of the way, and very flat. It was cool to walk along the canal the whole time. My dog loved jumping in and out of the water. Not too much foot traffic for a weekend, but ran into a few people. Parked at what I think is the middle of the trail, on the shoulder of Red Dog Rd. Was told you could also park at the other end of the trail, may have to check that out next time. Would definitely go to this trail again.

I wouldn't rate this hike as easy. Probably a little more moderate. Decent hiking trail with really pretty views. As far as the parking fee....there is no lock box to leave the $10. It looks like it was either broken into, or just needs to be fixed? A lot of the trail is in the sun, but if that doesn't bother you, then it is definitely worth checking out!

I like to park at or near the Rivers Edge restaurant on Riviera at Watt. I follow the Watt bridge on-ramp over the river to the American River Recreation area bike trail. That parking pot also serves a bike store, a couple of Brew pubs, and a Big Lots store.

amazing trail to run

This was a very beautiful trail. If you use the map it’s pretty easy to stay on track but you can adventure off if you want to as well. The sun will hit you for most of the hike so be prepared with enough water for everyone. I did this one without my 1.5 year old and I would recommend leaving the babies at home. Dogs had a blast but you’ll want to bring enough water for them too.

Was a great hike, lots of trees and was worth the drive to visit it.

Visited Bassi today. Beautiful as always. Not much water but what there was was clear and crisp.

Amazing views of river, can be very hot midday and very little shade. The way there is mostly downhill which makes it very arduous coming back. The river is crystal clear and so refreshing and calm to swim in. Encountered 20-30 people in 4 hours.

Lovely trail along the canal with shade almost the entire way. Easy ride, limited to no hills. dog friendly trail. Beautiful ride with moderate foot and bike traffic. Trail goes from Red Dog Rd to Gracie Rd. You can park at either end and hike from point to point (4.5 miles one way).

felt like it ended nowhere, but when I go again, which I will try and find a nice spot because its beautiful there

Beautiful views with a smidge of challenge. Go early and wear a hat.

River was crystal clear and good for jumping in. The markers are a little confusing. If you see gun shells or the shooting range, you went the wrong way. Got to go early or it's in the 90s with no cover on your way back.

Really enjoyed this trail! Great scenery with plenty of open clearings to enjoy it. The hike to the swimming spots was absolutely worth it as the water was clear and clean. Shade is limited after the first stretch so sun protection is recommended.

This trail has some pretty nice scenery. The cave is a must see, down at the end of trail once you reach the river great for pictures the water is crystal clear. make sure to have 2 bottles of water on the way back up the trail. over all hike is beautiful would recommend.

Downhill out, meaning uphill on the way back. Mostly gradual, with a few steeper sections. Much of the hike is on the side of the mountain with some cliffs so beware if afraid of heights. Nice views of the river. Shaded for about half of the hike. A 10 minute drive past Auburn does provide better scenery IMO.
