-Stevens Trail Hike-



If you are going on the Canada Trip in May, we highly recommend you join us and start building up your strength :)

Stevens Trail is about 7.5 miles long located near Colfax, California.  

The trail is great for hiking and normally takes a half day. It is very scenic, rich in history and is on the National Register of Historic places.  

From the trailhead at 2400ft., the trail drops gradually but steadily to the river at about 1200ft. Footing is good to excellent, but the trail is narrow in places.

Halfway point is beautiful area at river. You'll see the view the whole way in. It's a downslope to the river, so the return is a mostly gradual uphill.  

Carpool Fee: $10 per

Meetup time is 8am, depart time 8:15am

Distance: 7.5 miles

Elevation: beginning and ending at 2400ft ~ midpoint at 1200ft

Difficulty: Moderate due to the incline on the return and narrow spots on ridge

Dogs on leash, please clean up after.  

Some Poison Oak
