This was a delightful spring hike of approximately 5.1 miles out and back thought undulating meadowland resplendent with an amazing variety of wildflowers (29 species by our count!). After a brief gentle uphill the trail turns to follow the direction of the river, taking us though several gullies with tiny streams before descending closely alongside the river. The river emerges spectacularly on the descent and becomes easily accessible as you approach the Big Sandy Creek footbridge which we chose as our terminus. Just prior to the bridge we traversed a branch of the creak which is concealed beneath a jumble of huge boulders. Caves are reported to be in the vicinity. Altogether this was one of our favorite hikes of this spring and perhaps our favorite in the San Joaquin River Gorge. The flowers were incredible.

the river at the end was really pretty and there was a bunch of giant rocks to climb around on. very easy on the way there, definitely more inclined the way back but nothing too difficult. fun trail!

Nice, well-marked trail. Not many people - a few bicyclists and fewer hikers. Very little shade, so something to keep in mind for summer.

First to Review

Trail was great but I would say this is a little harder then easy. More of a moderate hike due to the steepness. We were the only people on the trail other then some bikes and it was beautiful out.
