Warm dry day in late February. Trail was in good shape views nice and falls had plenty of water. Basically a good day for these loops.

HikingGreat!

This trail is not as challenging as nearby training hill but has better views. It is also wide on the western side and sunny, narrow and shady to the east. A few mountain bikers but not too many.

Started at the bottom and went up. Really scenic hike. Took my 4 year old son, 60 yr old MIL and carried my 1 yr old on the back. Initial incline is fairly steep but afterword it’s very gradual. Path is rocky and loose gravel.

The trail was uphill to start and a easy downhill to end. Beautiful views, well trafficked and diverse terrain. Had to pay $10 for parking but there were clean bathrooms at the trailhead which is always a plus!

Beautiful bike ride. The Upper stagecoach trail was chunky with ruts deep and narrow but fun to ride down. Stagecoach trail was a nice road to ride up.

need to pay fee on both sides of the road. need to go early when it is hot. Parts of the trail have shade but lots of sun in others. Later in the day there is less shade.

We parked on Russell Rd, and did Stagecoach to the confluence, then the Quarry trail, and back up Stagecoach, for a total of about 16.4 miles. On the way back up Stagecoach we used Tinker’s Cutoff; it’s steep, but shady and cuts appx 1/3 mile off the total distance. We started a couple hours later than we should have, about 8am, and the heat was our biggest obstacle. The heat was so brutal that this didn’t feel like a hike, it felt like an awful test. Without the heat, this would have only been a long, easy walk. We took a short detour down to the river and cooled off in the water at one point. Overall it was a great hike, not too many people on the trail today, and for the first time in recent memory we did not see even one rattlesnake, so that was good. The canyon is full of them. I would recommend this hike for anyone looking for a good amount of distance without too much elevation gain.

Start very early in summer. I Love this for the views and wide well maintained trail. River and outhouses at the bottom. This was literally the stage coach trail into Auburn. Now used as a fire road. If you look closely you’ll see the stage coach wheel ruts still.

Great trail - good views and lots of places to rest if necessary. For the most part the trail is shaded. We started the trail at 8:30am on a weekday. The trail itself had a few people and mountain bikers. I recommend getting there early - lots of people in the parking area.

This was much more enjoyable than the Clemintine trail for the reason of not being over crowded. We started around 6:30am and ended up going off track a little. A great trail that our 2 year old and 4 year old enjoyed.
