Great little hike! There’s not a lot of shade so I would highly recommend doing it earlier in the day and bringing some sunscreen.

Nature tripsGreat!

I very much enjoyed this trail, but it has some steep sorta loose rock parts in a few spots - I was glad to have a hiking pole to help since I was carrying my 28lb one year old. That was a tough uphill back, lemme tell ya.

HikingGreat!

Short trail but the hike back up is a good workout. Poppy covered hills opposite the river if you love flowers. Not too far from Folsom. Wish the flowers were on the hike side of the river.

HikingGreat!

Great trail! Pretty steep elevation gain and loss, not many flat portions. Wouldn’t recommend if you have bad knees. But fun short hike! Saw some great fungi and mosses!

It was a well cleared trail. It is a steep trail both up and down, so be prepared to really climb on the way back up!

Good hike and great exercise! The only bad part was having our car broken into in the parking lot.

First we checked out the trail to an old mine. Then we went down the trail towards the river. We only went 3/4 of the way to the river because of time. Park in the gravel parking area inside the gate-it's free.

Good cardio as it is basically all downhill to the river and all uphill back. I’ll do it again but will start earlier in the day so I can sit by the river for awhile.
