Waterfalls and sweeping views of the Sacramento Valley and the Sutter Buttes.
Hidden Falls offers approximately 30 miles of multiple-use trails for hiking, running, biking and equestrian riding, two observation decks for viewing the 30 +/- foot waterfalls, riparian habitat along several creeks, unimproved picnic areas, swimming areas and fishing access. Engaging interpretive panels are mounted at various spots along the trails, and provide valuable information on the local flora and fauna within the Park. There are sweeping views of the Sacramento Valley to the Sutter Buttes and beyond, as well as plenty of open space for enjoying quiet time in a pristine outdoor environment.
Important: Parking reservations are required on the weekends and other high use days. Please visit the Placer County website at www.placer.ca.gov/2617/Hidden-Falls-Regional-Park.
The 1,200-acre Hidden Falls Regional Park is located between the communities of Auburn and Lincoln, north of the Ophir/Newcastle area. The park is situated along the Coon Creek and Deadman Creek watersheds, located south of the Bear River.
Skiers, riders, and sightseers alike will love the panoramic 10 minute ride that climbs 2,000 vertical feet and soars above a snowy mountainscape of granite rock and the iconic Tram Face.
While not as wide, level or well graded as Stagecoach Trail, it provides another perspective on the canyon, and has some shade.
This smaller reservoir features family campgrounds, 100 sites, piped water, vault toilets, group area, small store, paddle-boat rentals, pay phone, and private (fee charged) fishing access.
