Good hiking trail, a lot of diversity in terrain and in views, which makes it fun. This trail is not very well marked and it is easy to get lost. Using a map is suggested or go with someone who is familiar with the trail. While hiking this trail, it is advisable to be on the lookout for bikers. We had a couple close calls but if you pay attention, you'll be fine. Our dog loved this trail and had fun taking a break to swim in the river.

I personally love Sac trails. I hike, bike and trail run there. Trails are very tight and technical on MTB and runs. Hiking is good with the kids and just to spend time in God's handwork. Advice: pack water and know your trail(map). 10 years ago as a newbie, it was fairly easy to get turned around in the upper portion of the trails. If on the bike, wear a helmet, and pack a spare tube... plenty of Locust thorns. Otherwise, enjoy this very quiet trail system.
