Stevens Trail Hike (2B)

  • Apr 4, 2014 · 8:00 AM

On this outing we’ll hike down the canyon to the North Fork of the American River along the Stevens Trail .  Hike stats: 6.5 miles round-trip (approx), elevation gain 1,150’ (est.).  Hikers must be in reasonably good condition; the hike is downhill going in and uphill on the way out!   Bring the “10 essentials,” sturdy waterproof hiking boots, water, snacks, lunch, layered clothing due to changeable weather conditions and $$ for carpool drivers.  No minors. 

I will email the details about the local "rendezvous" spot to those signed-up about a week prior to the hike!   

 Contact leader for details.  Leader:  Bruce Notareus, [masked] or[masked] (before 9PM).

(Note: Please do not RSVP for this outing if you have disabled your Meet-Up email, in whole or in part.  I need to be able to communicate with RSVPs collectively and individually. If your Meet-Up settings do not allow me to do so, your RSVP will not be accepted.)

      I know. I change the orientation on my computer and save the files in their correct(ed) orientation prior to uploading them to Meet-Up.

      That used to work for me. All my pics are edited, so they are uploaded in their correct orientation. But the past six months or so Meetup seems to re-rotate them back to their original orientation. I'm flummoxed!

    Bruce did his usual 5 star guiding. The hike had waterfalls, stunning views of the hills and the North Fork of the American River, fields of wild flowers, even a cave :). The folks on the hike were friendly, courteous and fun to be with. A day that brings a smile to my spirit every time I think of it. Thanks everyone.

    What a terrific day for a low elevation hike! I had a total of 7.1 miles and 1,223' of elevation gain for the whole of the hike. Can't vouch for the accuracy, but reasonably close, I think. Great company, comfy weather (no rain! - I was worried about that), no crowds!, wildflowers are coming into bloom (It will be spectacular is 2-3 weeks!) & good amount of flow in the river! Thanks to all who came out. Posted some of the photos, only thing missing is a blue sky, but some are OK. Enjoy!

    Thanks Bruce, for a nice hike. It was interesting taking that new trail (to me) and seeing the wildflowers stating to show themselves was great.

    Tony and I will meet you at the trailhead. What time should we be there? As Susan said, there is a HiCo hike there also which usually brings 20 or so people. They won't start until 9:30 so it may not be a problem depending on when you think you will actually begin hiking.

    I just got an invite. For a Hikers & Company hike there the same day. We'll have some company! What time do we expect to return?

    • Bruce N

      Probably by mid-afternoon, depending on how long we linger at the river ...

    Never been there. Where is the Stevens Trail?

    February 23, 2014

    • Bruce N

      Near Colfax. Goes down to North Fork of American River. Trail was originally constructed as a "toll road" for miners working in the Iowa Hill area.
