Follow trailhead directions below. Start near the entrance kiosk for the state park, following signs for River Trail. Pass through the campground and under I-5. Follow signs along the old road and you’ll quickly reach a footbridge across the Sacramento River, a peaceful spot to stop and watch the water flow.
The path then runs a mile upstream above and occasionally alongside the east bank. A few steep side trails allow access to various points along the river, and strong swimmers will find places to submerge themselves.
