“A great trail local to Fresno.”— Brian Smith
You can do this trail as a shuttle or an out and back from any access point. You can connect to the Wuh-ki'o Trail or the Pa'san Ridge Trail at the Gorge parking lot for a truly epic day outside.
The meadow sections of the trail are spectacular in the spring when the wildflowers are in bloom. Be careful in the summer months as the heat is significant and there is no water available along the trail.
Make sure to stop and appreciate the Big Sandy Bridge that solved one of the connection problems for this trail.
