Owner description: Nine scenic parks along the river as it stretches from the Sierra Nevada foothills to the San Joaquin River.
Reviewed 9 April 2013

Brought the grandson here to watch the salmon run and I was awed. I had never seen this phenomenon. The park is really nice for a picnic and there is a historical covered bridge that you can walk on.

Walk this bridge; like the nesting swallows above me, history echos all around. It is easy to imagine the ghosts of miners and pioneers as you stroll out into the sunshine next to the ruins of a water mill. As locals like to do: picnic along the river, "cliff dive" off boulders along the river, hike the canyon or along the water way up on the rim. Visit the ranger museum, or canoe the river (as the park was originally conceived). Explore the village: ask why the metal spikes are embedded into the rock on the south side of the river, and go to Jail. Local Model T clubs occasionally get to motor thru this long wooden-covered structure. In late Spring, there is a great (free!) weekend Civil War battle re-enactment. In Fall, there are salmon viewing from the new bridge.
