Trail shared by Justin Johnsen

A mostly flat trail on the downhill side of a canal.

Justin Johnsen

Features Birding · Fall Colors · River/Creek · Views · Wildflowers · Wildlife

Open from 8 am to sunset (inside Auburn State Recreation Area).

Description

Mostly easy and level, but with the occasional tripping hazard next to a short, steep, downhill cliff section. Shady all year, and with year-round water in the canal. You can go as far out as you like and return when ready, or link it to other trails if you want more.

Flora & Fauna

Riparian, foothill woodland. Amphibians like the canal.
