This trail is rated as easy and it's far from it. Steep hills up and down and very rocky. I had my 3 yr old and 9 yr old and the trail can be very narrow at times. The tunnel was very cool though. We were not able to make it around the entire loop as we lost the trail half way around. It's a gorgeous trail but should not be listed as Easy and isn't the easiest for children.

Fascinating history and an easy walk around the eroded bluffs.

We've hiked this trial several times, and usually in the fall when it's cooler and the maple trees color is changing in town. Nice quiet trial with some amazing scenery. Lot's of history in town and on the trail. Left over remnants of the gold rush days using the water cannons are along the trail, and of course in town. The trail is easy and family friendly but be ready for swatting bugs away during your hike. There's also lots of signs that bears have been on the trail too. We've never seen one there in person, but we did have a close encounter once where we are confident noises just a few feet away in the brush was a bear getting to their feet and up on their hind feet. So now I ware a bell and carry bear spray just in case. Even though the state park is closed, the rest rooms are open and the trials are open. Enjoy a quiet time in nature and in history!

WOW... what a great lesson in history from the museum and old town of North Bloomfield, CA to the Malakoff 'Diggins Loop Trail' we really enjoyed all the places they had to learn about the GOLD RUSH! Great place to take the kids.
