    This hike is difficult due to frequent narrow spots with steep drop-offs. It's anything but fast going and can be brutally hot in the exposed areas during the summer. It's not for the faint of heart past Windy Point. Ele...

    Wonderful trail BUT not for those who have vertigo or get squeamish walking on narrow single-track rocky trail with sheer cliff drop-offs right next to you! *See note below. Today we had 9 creek crossings, 6 were easy ...

    While many people hike this trail and I've given it a moderate rating, hikers need to be confident in their ability. There are sections that traverse a step hillside with a single track trail. And there are a couple of p...

    The official Pennyweight trail is a 0.9 mile, pretty, mostly easy, trail with many nice views of the river and many side trails to the water. There is a mix of rocks and beaches and the additional lure of gold panning. M...

    A short, steep trail with a lot of slope exposure. This trail has one of the best spring wildflower displays in the area. There used to be only enough parking spaces for 4 cars at the trailhead. Now there is enough room ...

    You don’t need to walk all the river to get a great walk. This smaller loop has a great view and in spring this section has the best wildflowers

    It is actually named the Steven’s Trail and is located in a BLM management area.

    A trail to the river. There is a small cascade to see. The river has some beautiful but ferocious white water to look at. You will often see a few people looking for gold along the river. There are signs of old dredging,...
