I have used this trail many times mainly for running although it maybe used for biking, nature walking, fishing and even seen a few geocache along the way........Its an awesome mostly pave trail that follows the river it is also pet friendly. You can access trail from multiple points and there is plenty of wild life to see and you might even be lucky and see an angler rip a lip ......some times transits may be present use caution when walking/running/biking in the early morning and late evenings. They have recently redone parts of trail to make it much easier to follow. Happy Hiking

This is a great casual biking trail, especially for kids since it is paved and relatively level. The weather is usually superb, with scenic views of the water. We frequently see deer. It's also good for easy walking if you prefer a hard, level surface.

Our favorite local hiking trail!

Pros:
Lots of redwoods and a unique experience to hike downward if you start from Skyline. Very easy trail great for kids and beginners. Mixture of of shade and sun.

Cons:
Traffic can get heavy on weekends if you take 92, as you are competing with HMB. Watch out for poison oak. I wish there were better picnic stops or benches.

It's definitely an autumn trail for me, main parts of the trail is exposed to the sun. Much better to trek with a little over cast above. There are a lot of side trails that run along the creek. Beautiful views, lots of parking, lots of dragon flys in the area.

These trails are equally beautiful......both are well maintained and marked however we did have a slight oopsy! We did this trail on bikes when we got to top we were confused as trail did not specify no bikes on it.....needless to say we did it and we had to do a lot of carrying and walking of the bikes...lol oh well it was a twofer...2 work outs for the price of one.......I would highly recommend this trail for either hiking and or biking just remember that the one side is no bikes....Happy Hiking and Biking ;-)

Going off what Julie said there is lots of trails to see and explore so many that I at times did not know what one I was on....I enjoyed the hike though the oaks and views of the lake would have been great if we were not in such a terrible drought.....With all that said you could spend hours exploring and not see a soul and than off in the distance you can hear the laughter of children playing in the lake......The trail is pet and mountain bike friendly......Oroville has many great place to explore...Get out and play...Happy Hiking!

Whitewater River Loop

The AllTrails GPS was buggy today. This was one of those days where I was really counting on the GPS to work, which was fine before installing the latest update. Anyway it only recorded 0.2 miles to my dismay when the actual loop was 16.2 miles, major difference! Had to go to Google Earth, to determine the distance of this loop and show the track. It was partly cloudy at the beginning, but the entire loop today was mostly sunny. Whitewater River just for your information has no water, and only gets better when you arrive at Cimarron Golf Course and from there on to Tahquits Creek Loop where it really becomes awesome. Note: the trail along Whitewater River which appears to be paved in Google Earth is not, it's a dirt road. There's no drinking fountain along Whitewater River, it's when you arrive at the Golf Course where you'll find water (5 gal igloo on a stand) at the tee spots where they occur. This loop you'll want to accomplish riding a mountain bike or beach cruiser, especially when you're at the Whitewater River banks; it's that portion of the loop you definitely wouldn't want to be on foot. Do not attempt this loop at night because there are transients between Ramon Road and Dinah Shore. Bring some water even though there are drinking fountains along this entire loop; if you know where they're at? and indeed sun protection.
