This trail is not well marked and not a lot of shade. You see a lot of hills and dry grasslands. The gravel portion is nice and wide, but take off on some of the other trails to explore and get in a good hike. The highlight for me was crossing the water bed. Lots of horses on this one as seen by their manure.

I always enjoy hiking and I would say this is a nice trail to hike. Go hike it and enjoy yourself.

Not a bad trail, but I would say it’s probably best in the spring before everything turns brown. We hiked at 9AM on a June day and it was already pretty hot and there is NO shade.

Good trail. Cool history

While most of the terrain is flat, there are a LOT of volcanic rocks sticking up several inches above the ground. My kids (and me too) kept tripping on them. I wouldn't recommend using this as a running trail. However, the scenery is beautiful and the Jedd's lookout is fantastic this time of year! This loop also connects to a trail leading to Bend Ferry Rd.

Super easy trail to walk / run on. Once you get about 2 miles out, you will overlook the Sacramento River with a stunning view. Highly recommend.

It had beautiful open fields on a wide easy dirt road. Good for a short run or family hike .

Favorite local hike. I usually start where the pavement ends and hike up to the first cattle guard then turn around. about a five mile loop. Gorgeous views that change with the seasons. hesitant to give it a 5...I like that few are there.

Super easy trail that has some awesome scenery. Lots of rocks so expect a bumpy ride with some shallow water along the trail.

Hike this a few weeks ago. Lots of spring flowers out . The trail was very rocky, so take some good shoes !!
This is on BLM land and here is a link to the map:

As you can see there are several trails and lots of miles to hike. The Iron Canyon trail leads to an overlook of the Sacramento River. 'Jed's Overlook' (pictured)

This is not the best part of this area. If you take Jelly's Ferry road straight you will come to Oak Slough, gently rolling hills with views of Mt. Shasta and Mt. Lassen. You can also go right at the fork and follow the road around to the Paynes Creek Rec Area and pick up the Yana Trail. The two sides actually connect now at Ink's Creek if you are looking for a full day trip.
