Important: Parking lot is only open May 1 - October 31st (although walk-ins are allowed year round).

This trail features a moderate waterfall (at least in spring and early summer), some barns, gondolas, and fantastic views of Lake Tahoe. There's a variety of routes available for the lower part, then up higher you're on a connector that leads to the Tahoe Rim Trail. You can continue on the Tahoe Rim Trail to make as long of a hike as you'd like.

It goes steadily up the mountainside, but with lots of switchbacks so it's never dramatically steep.

Use the coordinates 38.920547, -120.696675 to find the spot -- most maps apps don't pick up the intersection.

This is mostly a forest road, which makes it a good wide trail through picturesque forest. You'll get to the creek with no problem. Supposedly there's a way to a waterfall, but I was only able to go a short distance upstream before it became impassable -- just saw a bunch of two foot waterfalls.

You can extend this hike as far as you like past the creek, just keep following the forest roads, but there's nothing particularly different to see that I know of.

Sporadic cell signal at the start and all along the trail -- can't be relied on but you get lucky sometimes.

The parking lot is in Cool near the fire station, $10 per car. No free parking options nearby.

Good in spring with lots of wildflowers.

A variety of routes are possible. Pointed Rocks is a 3 mile loop on this trail: www.mtdemocrat.com/prospec...hiker-pointed-rocks-trail/

Popular short trail to Bassi Falls. Gets crowded during spring waterfall season. To the base of the falls isn't hard, to the top is a little more challenging but not a problem if you're in shape.

This hike goes through Desolation Wilderness, free self-registration available at the trailhead.

You'll come to a junction with the option of either Lyons Lake or Sylvia Lake. Lyons Lake offers a steeper option than Sylvia Lake.

Liimited roadside parking on Shadowfax for the back entrance to the park, near the cemetery (should fit a handful of cars). The big parking lot is $10.

This is a very small park, but you can walk a mile or two loop through the wetlands and the cemetery. To make a longer hike of it you could cross the street to Browns Ravine Trail.

See www.wikiloc.com/hiking-tra...rest-georgetown-ca-7501535 for directions - it's way off in the forest down dirt roads with no address anywhere close, and the map pin here is not accurate.

If you're coming from highway 193, it should be about 2.5 miles along Rock Creek Road. Be sure to measure that since there's no address. Look for the giant electrical tower, and there's a small trail sign by the road too, and you'll see the little gravel road. Down the very short well-maintained gravel road there's a small parking lot, and the trail starts right there. There's room for 3 vehicles in the parking lot, and another 3 or 4 on the street.

This will take you about 400 feet elevation difference down to the river, then back up.

Find parking near the corner of Serrano and EDH Blvd -- that's a challenge, the parking lot right there you may notice on satellite is gated and private. Maybe the Raley's parking lot is the best bet. Then walk down Serrano on the north side on the sidewalk for a bit until you come to a path meandering off to your left. This path eventually intersects with the dirt trail to Asbestos Ridge.

Alternately, there appears to be a way in from the opposite end at the end of Adam Court -- which is a neighborhood where parking might be frowned on so you might want to walk in from Harvard Way. Don't try to enter from Meadow Wood because that's a gated street.

Very limited parking, room for maybe 4 vehicles, so this isn't likely to work for you on a weekend. It's just a gravel area by the road, on the left if heading north or the right if heading south. Head down the dirt trail and you'll join the ~17 mile Browns Ravine Trail in the middle, next to the lovely wooden bridge over New York Creek.

Lovely tree-shaded out and back trail that winds around above the shores of Folsom Lake and New York Creek as they merge.

Parking is $5, with an $18 annual parking pass available.

This is a new trail connecting Henningsen-Lotus Park to the Marshall Gold DIscovery State Historic Park. The connector itself is about a mile long, but you continue on the Monroe Ridge Trail from there. You can take it to Sutter's Mill or the Marshall Monument or the river or the rest of the sights in the area, and make a loop coming up the other end of the Monroe Ridge Trail. Ridgetop views should be good.

Quite steep, but safe switchbacks all the way up the hill.

Just a small dirt parking area along the road. Should be okay on a weekday but probably going to be full on a weekend. Connects to the Sweetwater Trail, it's about a mile and a half to the hidden bridge (which is above the water only in summer/fall/drought).

A short trail, pretty if you like oak trees. No way to avoid the expensive parking.
