The Wuh-ki'o Trail (Wuh-ki'o is the Dumna/Kechayi term for the San Joaquin River) starts from off the west side of the loop on the Pa'san Ridge Trail. About four miles long, it connects with Millerton Lake State Recreation Area on the Madera County side of the reservoir. The trail follows along the Although the trail is only about 4-5 miles RT you must park at the SJRG staging area, hike down across the bridge and up to the real trailhead making the total RT mileage closer to 9 miles. There is decent shade coverage but this is a trail best hiked in the fall/spring or winter because the summers are very hot and all the vegetation dries up. Reason for moderate difficulty is because of the length but the overall difficulty of the trail is low. FYI this trail is open year-round

Great trail. Went to Temerance Flat before turning around. Looked like it keeps going from there. Will definitely go back.

Another great day hike that is relatively close to Fresno. Not too crazy on terrain and elevation gain. Sites are somewhat nice all around. I'd say a great starter trail.

the hike to the bridge is nice but after that it's a pretty boring hike. once you get towards the end trail isn't traveled a lot so you may have to pay a little more attention. 3 gates and around 8.5 miles later your done. good exercise trail but not something to do for fun.

This hike was very misleading. This is not as easy of a hike as it states. The trail is very poorly marked. The trail leading to the bridge was an easy hike but the trail after was brutal. It turned into an all day hike that felt like it never ended. Re-think this hike before you do it. If you feel like your lost its because you are. Turn back or you'll get really lost.

This trail is an easy one that is perfect for an early morning hike! You get to cross the river via bridge and continue on the other side. I recommend bug spray or gators for your legs and good sunscreen. There's aren't many people and you can bring your dogs!

Gorgeous early spring hike. The flowers were amazing. I would say this this was a pretty easy hike. We wished we would have brought ours dogs, we saw so many on the trail.
