Dry Creek Trail (Modesto)

Nice, flat, pretty trail

May, 2017 by bobdudeeb

Had a nice relaxing ride along the trail in May. Weather was sunny but pleasant. The trail description is accurate: the trail follows Dry Creek, which had water after the Winter's heavy rains. The trail passes through several parks, as well as oak trees and grassland. We saw several people walking and biking on the trail, but it was not nearly as crowded as the Crystal Springs Trail. Recommended for Spring and Fall and possibly Winter, if it's not raining. Can be very hot in the Summer.

Dry Creek Trail (Modesto)

bike ride

May, 2017 by ghorney33

Nice calm cool day for a ride this morning, a few dips and curves beautiful scenery that was mountain and a meadow like. Good for my son and I to try out as we are both not used to long rides yet but hope to continue to learn and gather more experience while enjoying some nature.

Sugar Pine Railway - Strawberry Branch

Snow trail in Dec.

January, 2017 by ariel2kids

We passed the road leading into the trail on accident and stopped at the Summit Ranger station in Pinecrest for directions. We found out that the Fraser Flat Road trailhead was closed on Dec. 30th due to snow. The helpful ranger suggested that we pick up the trail on Old Sugar Pine road.
The trail head on Old Sugar Pine road (residential area) is very poorly marked. In fact we missed it because the marker was behind a tree and was only visible coming from the other direction.
From hwy 108 its 1.8 miles in on the left, if you cross over a small bridge you went to far.
After asking one of the residence we found the trail which was covered in snow. We did find markers 8 and 9 but, unfortunately we weren't prepared with info. to find out the historic value.
I can see why the mention of the Meadow and picking up trail on the other side would be hard. If it wasn't for the foot prints in the show I don't know if we would have found it.
With all that being said.....IT WAS BEAUTIFUL!
I will for sure being attempting this easy trail again in the spring.
Family friendly trail.

Merced River Trail

The Grumpy Old man

May, 2016 by c_dier

05/28/2016 Unshaded - Yes; limited.
Tons of sticker bushes - 5 varieties.
Challenging - Meh; Mostly flat with small inclines.
Watch for gopher/varmint holes.

Was easy to find on the Briceburg side. This trail was enjoyable, mostly. Bring your non-cloth hiking boots/shoes or wind up with "Bullet Ant" shoes.

The best part? The "rock fairy" a nice gentleman named Eric. Was very informative about geology.

Next trip is hike upstream, raft down stream.

The trail is mostly gravel until the 4 mile mark then it turns more rugged. About the 7.2m mark the trail becomes overgrown, bring your machete!

Dry Creek Trail (Modesto)

Great bike ride!

March, 2016 by jmccaslin

Enjoyed the length and condition of this trail. Did not like the street parking we found at Moose park end, so went to LaLoma park. Big lot with lots of activity.

Tuolumne River Trail

Good biking trail

March, 2016 by jmccaslin

Enjoyed the short bike ride on his trail. Found the park by gps: 1198 Tioga in Modesto. Parking on the street was all handicap. Found large parking lot off the street right before that lot in the park.
