This little gem of a trail highlights not only some of the wonderful flora of the area, but a little of the gold mining history as well.

Very nice easy loop. Great for any age, trail is well defined, nothing hard for small children. Some interesting rock formations and cool trees. A lot of poison oak right off the trail though. Easily avoidable but be aware if you have young ones that don't know what it is.

Great place for the whole family, all access and all fitness levels. It's about a .5 miles down to the SF American river with a really nice beach, then another .5 mile to finish the loop. My kids love this Loop and love hanging out on the beach in nice weather.

Good hike for the kids

This was a great trail for our family. We have an 8,4, and 3 year old and all but one walked the whole trail. The first half of the trail takes you down to a great little spot by the river and is completely jogging stroller friendly. The second half has a few really big rocks close to the trail which made it slow going with a jogger. We have put this one on our list of favorite hikes.
