Killer trail. Technical single track. My new favorite. Ascent on way back is 4 miles straight but a gradual steady climb. Beautiful views.

duude. ngl. In my 22 years of life, I can seriously say Steven's trail ranks one of the best trails I've had the pleasure to trek. SERIOUS. This trail is the bomb. Around 1-1.5 miles theres is a vantage point. (def selfie location) There's supposedly a waterfall around the corner but it dried up like a raisin. After the WF, theres a hole. Its a mining hole! Scary movie has taught me not to go in! The trails final destination is a sandy beach. It was littered with trash, but a passing hiker/prospector said there was a bear the previous night.

Beautiful views. Fairly difficult track back up. Bring tons of water & a camera, you'll want to capture the breathtaking views at the clearing about a third of the way down.

We brought the dogs who did great off leash since there are no horses or bikers.

I've hiked this trail 4 times now in the last 2 years and its AWESOME! Great hike and not far from Sacramento. Best part is you get to cool off at the bottom when you reach the river and its beautiful!! Great place for a picnic and swimming. Watch out for all the poison oak so stay on the trails and if "three leaves, let it be"! It's an easy hike so enjoy.

Great trail and one of the best places to swim I have ever seen. The water was warm and crystal clear! We hiked back maybe 2 miles to find a secluded swimming hole. There are more trails than the one that goes to the waterfall, and this time of year the waterfall is dry anyway. This one would have received 5 stars if it weren't for the $10 parking (no free parking around). There's 4 miles of dirt road to get to the bridge, so this place is not too crowded.
