We did a small stretch from Rattlesnake Bar to north for ~ 2 miles. First we started from Beals point - and that portion is boring for hike and just flat land. But from Rattlesnake Bar - it is somewhat better. I think it is rated moderate only because of its length - if you do it all. It has good scenery- but it also has horses, which at times make it difficult to walk pass by.

If you click the directions from AllTrails for the trail head - it takes you to a private road location - so don’t do that. Either start from Rattlesnake Bar Entrance or by the Douglas Blvd (Granite Bay entrance) - depending on how long hike you want to do.
