If you are hiking with children DO NOT park at the top off of Maidu Dr. It's a long slog down hill (mostly by road) to see anything. Take the road down to the lower parking area.

First to Review

This was a pretty decent hike. A lot of it was on the road. There were a couple of spots where I missed a turn and had to backtrack, but maybe that was me. A few spots on the trails were a bit overgrown, but mostly grasses. I was wearing shorts and got through it all right. There is very little shade as you get down by the dam and it’s a very steep road when you turn around. It was OK today but would probably be brutal mid summer!
