There are a few good spots along the river off of the trail if you look. Not a bad hike.

Pretty difficult for even a 4x4 w/ 3" lift. Really glad we aired down before starting, parts of the trail are washed out and had alot of rocks some really deep (and scary) ruts. After 2 miles, came across a closed gate and had to turn around. We went into the sequoia foothills visitor center to ask about it, and was told it is a park ranger only trail. If this is really the case I wish there was sign at the start of the road.

North Fork Dr is NOT paved all the way. It’s a pretty scary drive. 4-wheel drive recommended. We ended up pulling over and walking the rest of the road to the trail. The trail was gorgeous, although not maintained. The trail is a nice, easy hike along the creek.

Fun trail but should be rated more difficult for off roading. We had to stop and reverse about a mile in because of a deep 4 foot rut on one side and a drop off on the other. Will attempt again when we have someone else with us in case things go bad

how do I get gate access? or is it open during the seasons?

Good easy trail to hike. Did 8 miles out and back in a new psir of boots. Not many parking places at trailhead. But did not see anyone on the trail with me.

The trail seems to have taken a beating from rain storms. large section has a landslide (picture added) and heavy overgrowth and down trees. Also a lot of bugs this time of year. Recommend for very experienced hikers. Was beyond my skill set and was doing it solo, turned around for safety.

Nice old road now trail. I'm guessing it goes about 12 miles so you can hike as far as you like. We normally do 3 hours up, rest, and return.
