Stunning views of Clear Creek Canyon and the Sacramento Valley await anyone who takes this beautiful loop trail, however springtime is particularly beautiful with the many wild flowers. Much of the trail is within open grasslands and oak woodlands which enhances vista opportunities. The openness also help reduce the potential for startling other trail users. Look for evidence of some of the earliest placer gold mining in California. Unlike other areas, gold mining was over quickly thus allowing natural recovery and protecting early mining-related features. See if you can find an old cabin site or trace the route of a long-abandoned ditch!

Beautiful area. It was a little confusing at first but there are two separate trails going on here. One is mostly flat and the other goes up the hill to a vista point. Both gorgeous

This trail is very overgrown with lots and lots of poison oak and mosquitoes. I'd recommend hiking in pants and bringing bug spray. We didn't make it far into this hike with our little one because of the poison oak. I've never hiked such a poorly maintained trail, but it was beautiful nonetheless.

Enjoyable hike. Most of the trail is very easy. Only the starting/ending section edges into moderate.
