River views and a cool bridge at the east end of the hike make this a winner for kids.
Access this trail from the trailhead before the west end of the Hiouchi Bridge on Hwy 199 off the Hatton Trail. During the summer months, there is a seasonal footbridge that provides access from the Jedediah Smith Campground.
This is a lovely trail that heads next to the beautifully turquoise Smith River. Along the way, you can expect views of both the riparian (near-stream) forest and the old-growth redwoods.
