Wild Plum Loop Professional Review and Guide
"The short distance of the Wild Plum Loop, combined with the relatively low elevation, provides hikers with an early-season opportunity to ply their craft and get in shape while awaiting the disappearance of winter’s mantle higher up in the mountains. Spring has the additional bonus of a fine display of wildflowers. Fall, with its mild temperatures, is an equally pleasant time to enjoy the diverse habitats found on this trip. Even during the hot summer, the abundant shade along the loop makes for tolerable conditions. No matter what the season, hikers will be treated to several fine vistas of Sierra Buttes and the deep canyon of the North Fork of the Yuba River."
