Nature Trail and Madera Creek Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The upper section of the Nature Trail seems almost forgotten by hikers who are heading for the adjoining trailheads leading to the summit of Mount Wrightson, and there are relatively few people to be seen. Along the high trail, wooden benches are strategically placed for a relaxing rest and some of Madera Canyon’s best views of Mount Wrightson. After undulating high above the valley, the route plunges down to Madera Creek, where a very popular trail parallels both the creek and the road but is just far enough away from the latter for birdsong to be heard."
