South Fork National Recreation Trail, Yolla Bolla Wilderness (10/19/13)

While this trail is rated for “very enjoyable family hiking” due to the “gentle grades, those with an aversion to twisty turny roads or swinging footbridges may not find it so pleasant.

The swinging footbridge, high above the river, can even foil a wary dog!

If you keep your eyes peeled, you too may spy a Bald Eagle

The majority of this trail allows for side-by-side walking, such a rare treat.

There are a few points along the trail where you gain sufficient elevation to enjoy a view.

Jan’s Tips:

(1) The trailhead is about a two hour drive from Redding

(2) Details about the trail can be found at this Forest Service link

    • You’re welcome! It’s low enough elevation to probably be enjoyed almost year around. We saw some signs of nightly frost, but otherwise temps were lovely. The info indicated plenty of camping along the trail, but it seemed pretty sparse from what we could see.
