Hidden Falls Regional Park

Hidden Falls Regional Park in Auburn, CA
Directions: I-80 to I-49 in Auburn. Click on the link at the bottom of this post.

Hidden Falls Hikes are great for all family members. They have many trials to chose from: easy to difficult and even an ADA paved trail (great for little ones on their bikes and scooters). We went on the Poppy Trail with a 3 1/2 year old and a 10 month in a backpack, and made the entire 1.7 miles in about 1 1/2 hrs with pit stops along the way. Mid point is a bridge we went under and watched the water, going back we went to a small waterfall. Beautiful scenery all over as well as rocks, twigs and leaves to pick up for the little ones. Go to this site and click on the location map  and the map of the trails and choose your destination.

HI ~ I was just wondering about the waterfalls - I noticed that the map shows the Falls access trail as difficult - but you have the pic of the small waterfall... so I just wanted to clarify that if we go on one of the easy or moderate hikes, we will be able to see small waterfalls, just not the main falls? Thanks!

Yes, the trail we went on (I believe it was the Poppy trail) there is a small waterfall off the trail just a little bit. That is where we took a picture of. It is a beautiful setting.
