FOM FOK Hiking Group

Uvas Canyon County Park


This is a medium length hike, with a fair amount of climbing. But, half the climbing is along beautiful streams with waterfall after waterfall. There is a little over 1000 feet of climb along the first stream, and 200 feet along the second stream.

The trail is completely covered except for a little over a half mile near the end. The trails along the stream beds are more or less clear of poison oak, but you need to pay attention. Between the streams, the poison oak encroaches a lot more. It's easy to avoid, but you need to watch where you walk. There are several bridges over the first stream, with enough photo opportunities to go through more than one roll of film. The streams do disappear after the spring, so go early while it's still cool.

This trail is moderate to hard on the "Wimble Scale". Plan on two large water bottles and one or two snacks. The hike will take 2 to 3 hours. There are facilities at the trail head.
