Stagecoach Trail

This trail is easy to find and well maintained. However, it's not really along the river for so long and it's a relatively uninteresting trail with some views of the confluence from higher up. Just regular shrub brush and typical plants for the Auburn area. What hasn't been stated is that the trail is entirely uphill for the whole trail and downhill for the return; which is what makes it more of a medium to difficult trail depending on your abilities. I did see some runners on the trail so it's all relative to abilities. All in all, very nice trail for a short hike and a nice chat with you fellow hiker.

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.

The weather was great people on the trail were friendly. There were a lot of mountain Bikers. It was uphill all the way to the North Fork Dam and Clementine Lake. It was a pretty good workout.

The remnants of historic bridges dot the canyon walls. You pass under the Foresthill Bridge (highest bridge in California) and walk by the massive support pylons.

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.

Trail is not difficult but very pretty. Go early due to lots of people.

Over all this was a pleasant hike with great scenery. However I must warn you to watch out for ticks!!! My dog was infested with them by the time we left there! And the highway is pretty close to the trail so you have to hear the cars driving by for the first half of the hike.
