It is a paved road to the river. There are trails on the way down that give you different options to explore.

Pretty easy hike. It's paved the whole way so it's not as challenging as a dirt trail. I wish it was more dirt, but the incline makes it more interesting. There are a few side paths that go up the hill and provide nice views! There is another path nearby that is further south and leads to another picnic area on top of a huge cliff. We'll be making another trip soon to find that path!

Nice little hike to get away from the city for a bit. All paved and pretty much a gradual descent all the way to the river below. Easy to moderate and it definitely gets you breathing a little bit coming back up!

Pretty views. Really a road instead of a trail, but still a fun easy hike

Nice secluded trail through a deep wooded canyon. The north fork of the American River is beautiful and has lots of access points you can reach down by the water. Look out for rattlesnakes and black bears if your hiking early in the morning. Seen fresh bear tracks and a coiled up rattle snake right next to the trail. If you can't handle steep inclines both up and down then don't bother. Also if you do not have a deep down respect and understanding for nature DO NOT bother to come! STAY OUT LOSER!
