"This trail is steep to the river about 1,800 feet of elevation loss in only 2.5 miles and is, for much of the route, one big vista point. Dense foothill forest near the river, combined with old trails, makes for some confusing terrain. Prepare for this hike by poring over the available maps in advance. The dirt-and-duff trail can be difficult to follow right out of the gate, as the leaf matter filling the well-worn path obscures the tight switchbacks. Under cover of black oak and manzanita, plus ponderosa and foothill pine, you hike just shy of 300 yards, whereupon you won’t be able to resist your first vista of the North Fork’s upriver canyon and beyond to the Sierra Nevada."

The reason I rate this with 3 stars is because I prefer a trail more in the wilderness and this one backs a lot of multi-million dollar homes and a surface street at one point. The middle part of the hike - climbing Sugar Pine Mountain - however, was beautiful and the views stunning.
