Came here with my coworker friends on a Friday on an outing. Good if you want to do something quick and want to do something else in the same day too. Moderate to easy for an experienced hiker. They have good landing areas with vantage points to view the waterfalls. Pretty easy to get to the water and there were some spots where you could get in and chill out. The trail itself has dry terrain and lots of red dust all along (be prepared to wash your shoes after)

Great day hike to play in the water, but expect to see a lot of people especially on the weekend. We headed out on the poppy trail heading down the winding trail to the whiskey digins creek apron 1.2 miles. From there we crossed the river heading and got onto the hidden falls trail aprox .5 miles to the falls. Be prepared to meets lots of people with dogs and a few horses on the trails. Bring lots of water on a hot day, if you think you brought enough grab another bottle and take with you. The hike back is all up hill. On the way back we took the south legacy road just after whiskey bridge to head back up the hill to the car. It was all up hill but way faster and shorter that the trail down(.6 miles). There are many trails to discover here I have attached a like to the park where you can down load a map of the area and plan ahead.

Hidden Falls is always fun and even doable on a hot day. Lots of different trails you can take. My personal fave is just doing the Poppy Trail which takes you right down to the falls and the creek. The creek and falls are super refreshing to take a dip in. Creek walking down stream is very fun but a bit slippy! Make sure you wear your swimsuit and shoes you don't mind getting covered in red dirt.

Great family trails! Took our young ones (ages 3 and 3) on it. Very easy and leisurely.

This trail wasn't for me. It was crowded and more like a walk than a hike. It never really felt like getting out of the city and into nature due to the over crowding of all the trails. I would say if you are looking for a nice family outing, this is probably a good trail for that.

Hidden Falls is a beautiful park with a large variety of trails to explore. The park lies in the lower foothills of the Sierras near the town of Auburn. Many of the trails have posted maps and wildlife guides that make the trails even more interesting. This last weekend I got to observe a beautiful three foot California King snake (harmless) slowly moving its way up a hill. Other wildlife I saw included large frogs, lots of lizards, trout, California Poppies, Periwinkles, Red Tailed Hawks and many different kinds of small wild birds. The most common trail is the hidden falls access trail that parallels Deadman Creek. With such great views only a few miles from the parking lot, its no wonder that so many young families and outdoors enthusiasts frequent this location. If you want to step it up beyond the falls, over half the park remains to be explored. From my visit last week, I recommend the seven pools vista and the seven pools loop for a good climb and view. I definitely plan on going back in the near future. This park will take at least 2 to 3 full days to completely explore. Other things to know: Park closes at sunset so plan your hikes accordingly. No parking fees! Enjoy.
