Heads up, due to COVID-19 the road to the trail head is closed, so it’s about a 2.5 mile walk on the road to even get to the trail head.

This is not the pa'san ridge trail. this is the trail to the bridge where Pa'san ridge trail STARTS.

Easy trail. I went with my 7 and 11 yr old sons and my dog. We ran the entire trail. Good running trail. Blossoming flowers and beautiful greenery everywhere. Great time to take this trail.

Relatively easy. Very pretty lots of wild flowers. The bridge has great views, we were able to explore a bit and did see a snake, didn't stick around long enough to see what kind. There was quite a few cows on the drive in so be careful with that. A must do!

Great hike and some nice views of the gorge. The bridge has a slight bounce to it which is fun. Nice view of the river from the bridge as well. Kid and pet friendly trail with nice elevation on the hike back out.

a decent trail that ends with the bridge where you can explore around for a bit of fun, most will continue with the full pasaan trail though

Nice hike to the bridge. A bit uphill on the way back. Good place to hike in the winter, when the trails at higher elevation have snow.

Starts off going downhill, which was a change of pace. My dog and I encountered other uphill and downhill hikers with dogs and we were just fine moving to the side and letting others pass. Nice warm up for the rest of the hike if you continue to do the Pa’san Ridge Trail. You won’t encounter any cows till after the bridge. Going back up was borderline moderate level if you go at a steady pace. Can be easy if you take it up slow. Dog and kid friendly. I’d be aware of taking others with you who have knee problems since it starts at a downhill and you don’t really have time to warm up your quads and knees. Overall, agree with easy level hike.

Nice easy hike. Beautiful scenery. Only saw 3 other hikers on this day (11/25). Took my 9 year old and he did well.

I would probably rate this hike as Moderate. Going down hill is fine and easy but coming up hill my fiancé and I were definitely sweating and out of breathe! We hike all the time but this hike crept up on us going uphill. Also this hike is NOT dog friendly. The trails are VERY narrow. Luckily we didn’t run into any dogs on the trail because we had our two dogs. But every time we crossed hikers we had to move over into the brush. Very uncomfortable. The view from bridge is nice but other than nothing spectacular. We did this hike in November the grass was VERY dry. Not cute.

Ran across a rattlesnake on the trail. Water is low and great for swimming by the bridge.

Super easy to do. There is a five dollar day fee use of the park. There are a lot of cows so be careful driving to it and leaving it. The hike was quick for me and easy.

This is literally as far as you should go in this area. There's very little to see once you get past the bridge, and the weather is turning warm. We completed this while doing Pa'san Ridge, and it really was the best part. Not too long from the parking lot, which is tight, and the views from the bridge are sweet.

It’s spring and the wildflowers are brilliant. A friend and I took our combined 4 boys, ages ranging from 3-6, and everyone enjoyed it. We had to carry the youngest 2 on the last leg of the return trip, but all around, it’s a very kid friendly, beautiful, and well maintained trail.

Nice easy hike with wildflowers and a bridge at the end. Dog friendly. We arrived on Easter Sunday at 1:00 and got the last parking spot. But by the time we started a few other parties were leaving. Not too crowded and trail well marked. Would do again and bring our dogs.
