See a link to the map below. This used to be a small park, but a couple of years ago Placer County added a larger area beyond Canyon View Bridge and now you can make some longer loop trails. South Legacy Way and North Legacy Way (or vice versa) gives you a 7 mile loop. Another nice loop that's at least as long: cross Canyon View Bridge, take River Otter Loop, to Deer Trail, to Grey Squirrel Trail, to Creek Side Trail, and back across Canyon View Bridge towards the trail head.

It can get busy at the trail head, but these are all folks heading to the hidden falls and back. Once you get beyond the falls, it becomes nice and quiet, even on holidays and weekends.

There are many trails at Hidden Falls. Great for kids and dogs! Wear something you can swim in, there are many pools of water you can cool off in when walking.

This was a very easy hike, more of a nature walk. It offered a lot of options for different routes.. We hiked to Hidden Falls, then out to the Seven Pools Loop, for a total of about 4.5 miles. There were a lot of people on the first part of the trail, and many dogs. Going out on the loop was less crowded and more enjoyable. It was a very easy hike but pretty. A nice day outside.

Took the Hidden Falls Access Trail stopped at the viewing deck and then took the rock stairs down to the Coon Creek. Headed further on and stopped at the Canyon View Falls deck. A cold fog started to come in so I cut the hike short and headed back.

The trails were all very well maintained and well marked. There were information kiosks along the trails. The people I met along the way were all friendly and dogs were on leashes.I added the link to the trail system. It has a link to a very useful map of the trails. It is easy to plan out a hike

Checked out Creek Side Trail by dropping down from N Legacy Way & Deer Trail with my boys today. Gorgeous views with the sound of water running through small rapids the entire trail. Weather and temps were great. Definitely will do that stretch again

Took the boys this morning for 6+ mile hike. We changed up the trails from our usual staying on the south side of coon creek. The weather was perfect, temps in the 60's. The trails were in great shape and the landscape has turned green again. The trails were also tacky, a nice change from the dusty, dry conditions in the summer. My boys shared that the trails were moderate for them, although the uphill gradient on the way back can test them at the pace we set. All in all a fantastic outing.

To get the full 5.6 mileage you have to complete the Seven Pools loop which takes you up and around to the Hidden Falls. You also get spectacular views of Seven Pools.
