Length: 10.4 mi • Est. 4 h 33 m
This trail is a wide, level trail through oak, maple, pine, and cedar forests. Expect walkers, joggers, bicyclists, and equestrians. Dogs and horses must be kept tethered. Lyons lake is accessible by car when the gate on Highway 108 is open, so you can have somebody pick you up if want to make it a one-way hike. Look up Columbia Ditch Flume on Bing before trying it. It is not for those with acrophobia or balance problems. The trail crosses over a mile on a 20” wide walkway that is at times 50’ off the ground and has a view hundreds of feet down into the South Fork Stanislaus River gorge. If you have a fishing license, come back later to fish the beautiful ditch “stream” for planted rainbow trout. You can park where the ditch goes under South Fork Road and walk up Confidence Road to the railroad trail. Or you can park at the railroad trailhead. If there isn’t enough parking, there’s more along Confidence at the top, near Middle Camp Sugar Pine Road. Show more
