Perfect hike for kids. We were able to go down and play in the river in the middle of our hike. Well maintained and very easy to follow. Clean bathrooms.

Great hike. Many trails to select from. Trails are well maintained. We took the Up and Down trail and ended up at the American River. Weather was perfect for hiking, but might think twice if the temps were over 85..not many trees to protect from sun.

Great little hike for spur of the moment exercise.

This hike was gentle enough to go on with a child. Felt like a camp trail including intresting rock formations, trees, flowers and the river. Definately bring your fishing pole. Looked like there were some old buildings in town. will definately be back to explore those in the future!

Perfect trail to take the kids, easy and short. A couple of great spots off the trail to sit and enjoy the river or jump in to cool off!

Good for littles.

Perfect for kids. Easy terrain. Interesting things to see and nice break in the middle at the river where you can sit under some shade and get your feet wet. I brought my 3 young kids and dog and had a great time. Bonus, there is a bathroom and garbage can in the parking lot.

My dad was able to do this trail a few years back and he has a very bad back. I have gone here many times and I have always loved hiking it.

Easy for the younger crowd!!!

Nice trail. Watch out for ticks.

A very nice, leisurely hike past sheep, a old movie set, and down to the river. I'm glad it was overcast the day I went. You'll want a hat and carry drinking water as we get more into Summer.
