Hidden Falls Park is a pretty little spot between Auburn and Lincoln in Placer County where Coon Creek meets Deadman Creek.
We will hike about 6.5 miles at a slow and easy pace. This is a good beginner hike with some hills. I would label it "beginner plus." Don't worry, we'll wait for you at the top of the hills.
There are portable toilets at the trailhead.
It takes about 40 minutes to drive to the trailhead from the Sunsplash Park and Ride in Roseville, and it takes about 10 minutes from the Atwood Rd/Hwy 49 Park and Ride in North Auburn.
