This is a perfect example of a relatively flat urban hike combining the paved multi-use section of the San Joaquin River Parkway and its dirt shoulder with the natural setting of the Tom MacMichael Sr. Trail. The outline of the snowcapped Sierra Nevada to the east is an added visual treat. The hike begins on the Coke Hallowell Center for River Studies’ 20-acre patch of land above the San Joaquin River, the primary water source serving San Joaquin Valley cities and farmland. The property showcases a historic 1890s ranch house, River Studies and Conservation Trust buildings, gardens, a vineyard, a picnic area, and a gift shop.
