the trail that is mapped is easy and we did it with a double stroller and two little. there are other trails that branch off. we did one and the stroller had issues going over roots and stairs. All said it was a couple miles. very clean and a beautiful day.

There is a native american museum which has a nice display of art. There are teepees and other structures which are interesting. There are picnic tables. There are short hikes and it is perfect if you are going there with toddlers.

Very easy trail. There are two loops, the north trail and the south trail, both pretty short, under 2 miles. Dogs are not allowed on the trails but are allowed in the park on the paved areas. Nice campground. Twice a year the Miwok Indians come to the park to celebrate their culture. Wonderful events. Museum opens at 10 am.

I love this place. I grew up close by so I spent many days exploring around the park and have watched it grow over the years. This is a great family location. You get a little history and some exercise as well. The trails are not too difficult and having the amenities make this a must. Please enjoy and support our fabulous park.

This is a very special place however the trail is short. It's best to go when there are events going on because then you get the whole expirience.

Indian grinding rock is a state park, with a small Native American History museum. The grinding rock contains decorative carvings, known to be thousands of years old. The carvings are becoming hard to see, due to natural erosion. The nature trail takes you around a Native American village. Some buildings continue to be used in native American ceremonies. The trail is a flat, easy to navigate surface, some of which is paved. There is a self guided tour, showing plants the native Americans depended on for survival. the trail can be warm during the spring and summer, and would probably be unremarkable, if not for the strong Native American history, that can be found within. There are restroom facilities and water available on site.
