Easy hike down to the river, difficult going back up. There's a pretty good amount of poison oak so it's helpful if you know what it looks like. There's a cool cave to explore and swimming in the river after the hike down was a great way to cool down and relax.

According to all the maps, I live 20 minutes away from the trail head. Spent an hour and a half using every resource possible to find this trail because all of the wonderful things people say about it. Still never found it. Wouldn't suggest wasting your time.

Great trail with a really nice swimming spot. Wouldn't say easy due to the trek back. Will go back with more of a lunch and spend more time in the water.

It was strenuous and uphill on the way out. If in summer definitely be ready for heat. Downhill on the way in leads to American river. The plunge in the river was fantastic.

It was a strenuous hike hike on the way out. It was downhill a majority of the way in and uphill on the way out. If it is summer, go earlier in the AM because it gets warm. Take plenty of water for the return trip out.

The GPS on the app (and according to the map on this page) for this trail takes you to a residential neighborhood in Colfax. We couldn't find any indication of a trailhead. Very disappointing, as we drove 30 minutes to get there, and couldn't go for a ride because there doesn't seem to be any other road trails in Colfax, according to the app. If there is a trailhead for this, please get it corrected on the app. Or if anyone knows how to find the trailhead, please reply to this review. Thanks!

Beautiful, but definitely not "easy" on the way back. Turned around at the cave because it was getting warm and we could tell it would be tough in the heat on the way back up.
