“Earn some great views from the South Rim of Big Chico Creek Canyon.”— Jco25 Colby
Annie Bidwell Trail begins immediately climbing up to the canyon's rim until intersecting with Guardian Trail. At the intersection of South Rim and Guardians take the steep, rocky downhill back towards Big Chico Creek. At the end of Annie Bidwell Trail, turn right onto 10 Mile House Trail and climb to the start of Guardian Trail.
Guardian offers some of the best views in Bidwell Park as well as some of its best singletrack. This trail ends where it intersects Annie Bidwell Trail. From here you'll revisit a section of Annie Bidwell Trail that you already came up.
