I hiked the Upper Bidwell Park Trail for the first time today (it was very smoky but still very beautiful) and I absolutely loved it! I took a few wrong turns and ended up on multiple trails so let me tell you the path I took...

I started out on the Upper Bidwell Trail and decided to continue onto the Middle Trail instead of taking the Live Oak Trail to elongate my hike. I ascended all the way up to B Trail (which was so much fun). Then, on the way down, I followed the North Rim Trail to the Maidu Trail to finish my hike.

What a long and interesting hike! The way up was tiring and the trail was very rocky at times. I wore my Nike running shoes thinking they would provide enough comfort but the rocks and grade of the trails killed my ankles. I would definitely wear some hiking boots or shoes that support the ankles. The views were fantastic even with the smoke from the Camp Fire. Not a very hard trail by any means and I am looking forward to going again!

If anybody wants to have a hiking buddy, please add/message me on Facebook (22/M).
