The seven year old Hidden Falls Regional Park, located in the foothills between Auburn and Lincoln, has been expanded from its original 221 acres to 1,200 acres. Already built during the first phase was an observation deck allowing close-up views of the 30 foot waterfall that gives the park its name, multiple-use trails, picnic areas, and fishing access.
The expansion offers new sweeping views of the Sacramento Valley to the Sutter Buttes and beyond. Two new bridge crossings connect trail users to both sides of the Coon Creek watershed. You can also enjoy more picnic areas and a second observation deck above another waterfall.
The park is open from sunrise to sunset, 365 days a year at no charge to visitors.
Trails range from easy (fire access roads) to difficult (single track switchbacks).
Trails are very well done, some of the best new trail I have been on. Four interconected loops which would be good for new riders to expaned their skill level. We had fun doing the loops in differant ways, most climbs are on the short side. Will be a 10 rating when it is done with more miles.
IMPORTANT!: Reservations are required on the weekends and other high use days. Please visit the Placer County website at https://www.placer.ca.gov/Facilities/Facility/Details/Hidden-Falls-Regional-Park-53
