About This Trail

[Total: 3    Average: 2/5]


3.2 mile loop in Hidden Falls Regional Park in Auburn, CA. Mellow trail through meadows and oak forest to a beautiful waterfall and creek. The final ~half mile down to the creek is a little steeper and rockier, otherwise trail smooth enough to accommodate a solid stroller. This is a heavily trafficked loop trail that features a waterfall and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash. Lots of greenery, great signs to read (you can’t get lost) Poppies do bloom here.
