The first quarter mile of this nature walk if you will is right next to the highway. It does not look very promising and can be difficult to find the turn off. If you run into the hardware store you have went too far. Once you get into the more forestry area it’s very relaxing and beautiful. But if you are looking for a killer view this is just not the place for you. There is lots of bugs. Which is probably due to the irrigation water. You will also end your walk near the highway too. I probably won’t need to visit again.

Decent trail along the Rough and Ready highway as well as down into the canyon. This is a good “in town” trail if you don’t want to venture far. There were still some spring wildflowers to see. Lots of poison oak on the trail downhill, so be careful not to venture off the trail. There were some piles of trash along the trail.

Nice trail close to the main road. One part of it is not marked well so download the maps for offline use first.

Walking

A very easy trail which seems to be part logging road and canal ditch trail. It circles around a lovely church which has picnic tables and nice views in the back. Not for any scenic walk, just a peaceful, easy walk for some fresh air and outdoor walk. There is a short, rocky part which would be hard for a stroller or those at risk of twisting ankles but once off of the logging road, very level. All the more popular trails are too populated during the Covid-19 so this was perfect for us to get fresh air and enjoy the churches beautiful flowers and water feature with a cross. The trail is also marked.

Tried this trail for the first time today on mountain bikes, not sure about the trail markers, could use improvement, we guessed a few times. The initial downhill was a bit rocky but doable, the rest was a very pleasant and easy ride next to the ditch/canal (not a river) last leg uphill was a GREAT workout, we'll do this one again.

Nice walk. Good downhill and uphill. Nice to hear the ditch gurgling with water.
