Hidden Falls Access Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Waterfalls and cataracts on two streams that run through Hidden Falls Regional Park are the focal points of this double-loop hike. Hidden Falls drops 75 feet or so over stair-step cliffs, with an overlook platform offering easy access to the view. The Seven Pools can be seen from a high rock outcrop, water spilling from basin to basin within a rock-walled hollow."
--Tracy Salcedo- Chourre, Best Hikes Near Sacramento (Falcon Guides).
"A loop hike through Hidden Falls Regional Park, just west of Sacramento, leads to the headline falls and also to an overlook of the Seven Pools."
--Tracy Salcedo-Chourré, Hiking Waterfalls in Northern California (Falcon Guides).
"Your trail, which starts out near the top of the ridge, descends to Deadman Creek, then ascends the next ridge to the north before arriving at the pools of Coon Creek. The nicely shaded path takes you along Coon Creek as you make your way west toward Deadman’s Creek. Hidden Falls Regional Park, the crown jewel of Placer County’s Placer Legacy program, is a model for suburban open-space design and use. The park’s 7 miles of trails are available to hikers, bikers, runners, and horseback riders. These trails are well marked, and the intersections are somewhat frequent, so becoming temporarily disoriented should not be a concern on this hike."
