What a great trail with so many accents! There are rolling mountain views, a waterfall (careful the rocks are a little slippery), a cave (this was an adventure, went as far as the dirty pair of underwear, which clearly stated, "GO BACK") and then the beautiful American River (Plenty of swimming holes with clear, emerald pools.) A little warning, parts of the trail are clearly marked for mountain biking and other parts for hikers. I found mountain bikers on the hiking part of the trails. So keep your eyes up and your ears open. Pretty easy trail except the ass kicker coming back. it is a steady incline all the way up, 4.5 miles.

Did not arrive early enough to complete the entire hike but it was beautiful surroundings with a little bit of nice rock climbing around a waterfall and pretty little creek. I will definitely go back to do the entire hike.

Nice hiking trail! Narrow scenic trail leads to river lots of creeks, forest feel, good views, dog friendly, mostly shaded. Some freeway noise in the beginning but not for long! no gate or parking fee.

BEAUTIFUL hike! We got a late start so we only hiked half way. We have 2 small Boston terriers and they slowing down towards the end and it wasn't even the full 9 miles. We will hike here again but will bring a lunch to eat and rest at the bottom. Like everyone else states, going back up is a bit tough so take lots of water! Easy and free parking, close to town. This is a must do!

This is a narrow trail along the river canyon. We hiked it in January with frost on the ground and it was slow going. Because of this it felt a little longer than the listed 3 miles. Towards the end, the trail opens up into a meadow that should be really nice in summer.

Depending on the time of year, getting on the trail maybe the most difficult part. At the trail head, after you take the wooden stairs down, you need to cross the creek that feeds into the river. Some rock hopping is required when the water is high.

There is an amazing two with all kinds of crystals. But be very careful about crossing the waterfall on the slippery rocks!

Beautiful trail. I only did half of it. My pups are 10 and 11. They did great, but it's uphill most of the way back.
I can't wait to do it again!
