A balloon on a string with a wonderful downhill - most people run it clockwise.

Overview

It costs $5 to park in the San Joaquin River Gorge parking lot.
Features: -none-
Dogs: Leashed

Description

From the bathrooms follow the trail downhill for about a mile until you get to bridge that crosses the San Joaquin River. Enjoy the view here and notice the hydroelectric plant just upriver a bit.

Cross the bridge and start climbing. Most people take the trail to left and do the loop clockwise. As the trail levels out for a short bit, you'll notice the Wuh-ki'o Trail connects and goes to your left. Continue climbing, near the top there is a very rocky section of trail. When you get to the top there are several places to stop and enjoy the view.

When you get back to the parking lot, if you didn't get enough miles in, then take the San Joaquin River Trail for an out and back or shuttle to Finegold.
