Just did this on on my MB. It starts out as a road then gets pretty narrow in spots on a steep side hill. Beautiful views to the river. A good climb going in for this 62 year old. Will do it again in the spring.

Great trail for people of all levels, my 3 and 5 yr olds were able to do most of the trail. To be clear, it's 2 miles out and 2 miles back.
Be sure to pay for parking or you'll incur a $72 ticket from the Parks Dept.

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.

Easy short trail with nice views of the confluence area and mountain quarries railroad bridge. Also nice for a change to have a trail going downhill on the way back.

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.

Easy trail with some nice views of the river. We took it all the way down to the river to the pumping station (?)

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.

Lake Clementine Trail to Fuel Break Trail to Culvert Trail to Confluence Trail gives you a nice 7 mile loop. We used Shane Dinkins tracks. Mostly uphill until you reach the Confluence Trail after crossing Forest Hill Road. It took us about 3 hrs. in all. Nice hike!
