    Mike O reviewed Old Salmon River Trail

    3 months ago

    Flat. Good "warm up" trail with neat mossy tree views and river. Runs along river and the road but only heard 3 cars whole time near far end of trail. Couple spots to dip toes in river and possibly swim, take water shoes. Need a parking pass, get one at the Zig Zag info station .25 mi west of Salmon River Rd.

    2hr 45mins with 11 and 15 yr old. Measured 6.2 miles incl the falls. Great hike, great redwoods. Roots slow you down a bit but good payoffs at the end of the out and back at boy scout tree and waterfall. Cruddy gravel road to get there. Supposedly the most popular trail in Jedediah but we got there at 2pm on a Wednesday (Aug 1) and parked right at the trail head.

    Completed 4.4 mi in 2.5 hrs with a 15 and 11 yr old, including the through time trail section. 760 feet of elevation in first half of hike up to overlook, dry and open so start early and take plenty of H2O. A few trees to rest under along the way. This trail is a real find, views are fantastic and the hike is eye opening - 50+ million years of Earth history layered in front of you. We had the overlook trail to ourselves except for 2 workers surveying. Only downside is last third of trail some of the view is the road and parking lot. But totally worth it. Stop at the visitors center and chip in a donation and learn about what you just saw. Its a very nice visitors center and educational. Informative workers. Some of the reviews here refer to just the shorter through time trail at the same location, its flat and does have a number of metal bridges but terminates in a BLUE box canyon! You can take this trail leg near the end of the overlook hike to see it all.

    Mike O reviewed Miner's Ridge and James Irvine Trail Loop

    3 months ago

    We did it in about 6 hours with an 11 and 15 yr old. Definitely doable but its a long trail and some challenging vertical especially after 10 miles of hiking ... so bring food and hydration. The description doesnt do the beach leg justice. We did the Irvine leg first, exiting Fern Canyon to the beach and hiking south along/in the water for 1 mile to the Miner Ridge trail head. There is a campground near the Miner entrance with nice bathrooms and even a shower. Wish we started earlier, took lunch and swim suits maybe and hung out on the beach longer, we only spent about 30 mins. This is gorgeous California coastline. Walked left (north) out of campground on dirt road to the gated tsunami escape road back on to trail.

    Mike O reviewed Garfield Peak Trail

    1.5 hrs (1 hr up and 30 mins down) with 11 and 15 yr olds. Great views of the lake. Crowded but 4 stars due to smoke from wild fires. We got the views and we could see all the way across but not the deep blue color! Keep an eye on the crater webcam if you are not staying at the lodge. Dry and steep going up and starts at 7k ft so take water. We had lunch at the lodge after. While we waited for our table, had a drink in a rocking chair on the patio overlooking the lake.
