Today I went up to check out the hike...fully prepared. My dog in tow. we had water, snacks. Started out at 945 a.m. and it quickly became hot. we walked near the water and the rocky terrain for an hour and called it quits. great scenery and nature atmosphere. Loved it.

Great hike! I took 4 boys between 9 years old and 15 years old. Probably a little too much for the 12 and under kids depending on fitness level but we did all complete the hike after SEVERAL short breaks. The views from the peak are amazing and include the entire valley, Sutter Buttes, and the Sierra Nevada's. Take LOTS of water especially during the late spring and summer months! We completed the hike in about 3.5 hrs.

The bridge crossing Cache Creek is open. The trail is clear, narrow in some places, with some poison oak at ankle level. Made it to the peak just in time for it to hail on us! Beautiful views at the top and a log book with lots of signatures.

Trail is okay, seemed a lot longer than 3mi and there's a couple of muddy spots along the trail that are unavoidable

We tried to do the hike today, but the bridge is underwater so we weren't able to access the trail. Hopefully once the creek level goes down i can do it again because its a great hike (did it a couple years ago). The views are definitely worth the work getting there. A great workout!!

Decent area. Most of the wilderness is dead cause of the fire a few years ago so there isn't a lot of wild life. The incline when you reach the mountain is pretty tough. Steep incline. The water level is high in cache creek during winter. I went during January. There is nowhere to cross the cache creek on the winter when you reach the baton flat. I was told by the locals that the creek can be crossed during the summer. It is about 2.5 miles from the parking area to the baton flat. Great views when you get to the top of the mountain.

I'm a local and everyone knows this trail as "Low Water Bridge" it's an awesome trail that was used back in the old days before hwy 16 connected to hwy 20. The gate is locked and closed to cars, trucks and side by sides BUT it is open to dirtbikes and atvs (just drive around the gate between the posts). Be sure to have your bike registered because sometimes you will run into sheriffs patrolling the trail (very rare but it does happen). If you are a beginner just take it easy because the hills getting steeper and steeper the farther you go. Overall one of my favorite trails to go ride and see some amazing views.

The elevation gain makes this a challenging "moderate" hike but the views at the top are worth it. Just be prepared for some steep inclines and rocky patches

This trail has beautiful views along the steady climb. Lots of scrambling over rocks. Coming down at 2:30pm I encountered a rattlesnake whose rattle warning sent me yelping back up the hill in surprise. He must have been sunning himself on the trail. Otherwise, not much wildlife- just tiny lizards and a bird here and there.
