Eventho it's gotten little hard at some points my 7 year old still loved it.This is one of the most kid friendly and moderate hike.

Nice little hike to take the dog along with you. The most interesting parts of the hike are the ruins of the dam, the mortar/pestle rocks used by the Kumyaay nation, and the various plaques on the importance of grasslands.

This trail is a bit convoluted, so the app and the mission trails map came in handy. Park in the East Fortuna staging area, and yes, there are restrooms there. :)
There are 2-3 steep areas toward the beginning of the hike, and rather rocky terrain around the middle. The trail runs along the river beds for a distance. The rocks are beautiful right now, and I look forward to returning to see water flowing in the river and down several small waterfalls.
