See historic Iowa Hill and the Colfax-Foresthill Suspension Bridge. Get a close-up look at numerous hydraulic mines. Hike below bridge to large, crystal-clear swimming area. If you just want to swim, go directly to bridge from east end of Yankee Jim’s Road. Graded forest road. Four-wheel drive not needed when dry.

Very Easy trail and very pretty. When you get the the bottom of the valley there are some little caves that are cool. Few cool water falls to climb up and to check out. Very Easy trail need a pickup but not 4wd.
