Wide trail. Lots of horseback riders. Lots of up and downhill. My 12 yr old son and I went in January while it was cool outside and it was fine. I cannot imagine this hike during full sun, 65 degrees or warmer. Almost zero shade. Very open valley. The river is at about the halfway point. We did 4.44 mile loop.

Great place for the whole family, all access and all fitness levels. It's about a .5 miles down to the SF American river with a really nice beach, then another .5 mile to finish the loop. My kids love this Loop and love hanging out on the beach in nice weather.

Will return :)

Moderate to difficult depending on what direction via mountain bike. Leaving from Skunk Canyon lot starts out all uphill for approx two miles.

I hated this one. dusty and just not my cup of tea
