"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." Read more

"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." Read more

Great area with lots of trails. The main trail was wide with gravel and had a few folks with strollers. I would recommend the off road style. Finding the trail (park) was easy. It was busy on the warm spring weekend! Many folks with dogs, a few horses, and a few bikers were on the trails. I will go back to hike more of the area, maybe a weekday to have a few less crowds.
