Awesome trail. I did the hidden falls, n. Legacy, and s. Legacy in about 3.5 hours. Not a difficult trail at all but rather long. I think it is a total of 9 miles from car around loop and back to car. There are a couple nice water falls along the way and plenty of maps so you cant get lost. Although rarely rarely seen, They say mountain lions are along the trail so bring a weapon just in case. Happy trails!

The Loop is the outer most trails of Hidden Falls Trail and takes you right to one of the Falls viewing decks. The trail is comprised of many other trails to complete the loop.
Hidden Falls Regional Park has maps and lots of parking. You must pre register for parking online with Placer County for weekends and Holidays. https://secure.rec1.com/CA/placer-ca/catalog
The 14.9 mile hike was nice and cool in November with lots of green grass and critters running around.
A great trail with lots of great views.

This is a service road once you get down the main hill. Lots of people.
More of a very short walk.

Check your dogs for ticks! Never had a problem with either of mine, but found 3 ticks and a flea after this hike!

New to the area and after researching places, I found this area. Luckily, I read other reviews about parking permits. You have to make a reservation online. It's super easy. $8 for the whole day. Rangers are at the entrance to collect you're permit number and give you a parking tag. The service in the area is next to none, so don't rely on it during your hikes. There are many many trails. I took a picture on my phone of the map at the beginning which was very helpful to have. I took the Poppy trail with switchbacks and a pretty waterfall then crossed the bridge to the hidden falls trail. The hidden falls are pretty and there is an area where kids can play in the water or dogs. I went to the canyon lookout then hiked back the same way. It was about 3 hours for me and my dog to do that. It was a great wooded hike and there were many people that had their dogs. I like to have mine off leash but with all the people and dogs, I had her on leash half the time. There are only bathrooms at the parking lot. There are some trash receptacles along the way for doggy poop bags and other trash which was helpful. Overall, I really enjoyed this spot and will definitely go back to do more trails.

Great easy trail in the oak trees. You must pay for parking before going. My cell service was spotty in the area, so make sure you make reservations before you go.

This is an amazing find! There are a lot of trails available depending on what you love. I️ took the north side of the trail and it was gorgeous . Please make sure you book a parking spot in advance online - it’s $4 for sunrise to 9.30 am , $4 for 2.30pm to sunset and $8 for while day. You won’t be able to pay for the parking on the spot and there is very feeble network. We had to drive down to auburn to go online and book a parking spot.
