This is a very pretty hike, lots of wildlife to see along the way. There is about a 600 foot increase in elevation along the way, and is just over 4 miles out and back. The only downside is that it does run parallel along Highway 49 and at times the traffic noise overrides the noise of the wildlife around you. But still a nice, easy hike we will do again.

Good hike place to kill time while waiting for visitation at county jail to open. Right across the street.

Very pretty. The major plus is convenience - just 4 min from downtown Nevada city. On the downside some of the pay weaves over the road so you don't feel as remote.

I walk this trail frequently, about 1 mile in there is a beautiful large lake/pond. Ver accessible, has signage and its own parking lot. A great 5 mile one way walk!

this is near grass Valley, Nevada city. it's a nice hike to take dogs, kids, older folks. easy mellow relaxing. it does parallel hwy 49 at times but not the busy traffic section. if you live close, it's a great walk in nature. i wouldn't recommend it for a long drive up from Sac when there are endless beautiful hikes in the area. we enjoy it for a stroll after a rain, it's just below snow level, quick walk before dark or before our evening d dinner plans.
