Spring Flowers and Fairy Falls: Spenceville Wildlife Management and Recreation Area Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Lupines, poppies, and wild onions carpet the hillsides during spring. A 100-foot waterfall runs year-round, with a wonderful swimming hole downstream. If you like watching wildlife, there's everything from river otters and deer to wood ducks and elusive black rails. The 11,213-acre Spenceville Wildlife Management and Recreation Area, managed by the California Department of Fish and Game, is a sleeper! Located northeast of Camp Far West and east of Beale Air Force Base, it is just a quick trip from urban Sacramento. Whether you like wildflowers, bird-watching, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, or hunting, this natural area offers it all?and a respite from the big crowds attracted to better known sites."

This was a fun hike with a beautiful waterfall at the end of the trail. It was a fairly flat hike, that my entire family was able to accomplish (kids 4, 6, 8). The wildflowers were starting to fade, so it would be best a couple of weeks earlier.
