Did the south legacy to north legacy loop. About 7 miles total. Most of the route was shaded. Moderate skill. Great hike with nice views.

Wish someone would have mentioned that if you don't get there early then the park ranger blocks the road and only lets you drive back and forth until you happen to pass when she has an opening. Haven't done the hike yet for that reason. Hopefully soon.

Did this route in the order of: Poppy Trail > Hidden Falls Access > River Otter Loop > Canyon View > Seven Pools > Seven Pools Vista > South Legacy

Though the trail maps would describe some of these sections as difficult, they are moderate at best.

Everything looks amazing with the water running in the late winter/early spring. Some of the smaller creek tributaries were dry, but all was green.

River otter loop was the least interesting section of this route. Canyon view was one of the most interesting, though you won't find it on the map posts within the park.

Shorts advisable, as it was fairly muggy for pants.

A fun easy hike, busy though. The falls had lots of water, the trail had lots of ticks, founds 3, so be very careful!

I was in Sacramento and Googled this hike and it was convenient enough to try it. since California is in a drought I didn't get to see too much of amazing waterfalls but I'll be back. I found a lot of paths to take to get to the falls. parking was very easy.
