Pretty and very well marked trail. Lots of flowers and green in the spring. There are also connecting trails so you can add more distance. I think it's a little more on the "easy" side.

Great hike among open meadows. Perfect for sunny days in winter and early spring. Some incline, beautiful views of the hills, close to the American river. I highly recommend it.

This is an outstanding hike that is very un-trafficked. As the title of the hike lends, there is lots of opportunity for elevation gain and loss. But if you are looking for a Bluebird Day hike that offers views, solitude and even more views, this should be the first consideration. I’m so pumped to come back and take the river level trail.

Fairly wide trail with a half-way point of the river. Lots of dogs and horses. There's one narrow downhill section leading to the river which would make it hard to pass other animals, but no one was on that part of the trail. There's a ton of trails that branch off, so at times it helped to use this map to stay on the right trail.

Very open beautiful trail. A bit muddy in parts but drying out.
