Hiking and Biking
Trails: Enjoy the easy to intermidiate 1.4 mile (one-way) hiking trail along the South Fork of the Tuolumne River into the Yosemite Wilderness Area to Carlon Falls. Have a picnic and cool off with a refreshing swim.
This trail begins on the Stanislaus National Forest at the Carlon Day Use Area off of Evergreen Rd. Since the trail enters the Yosemite Wilderness Area, biking and dogs are not allowed.
Hike the many well-marked trails and see spectacular vistas, unique geological formations, wild flowers, sparkling lakes, and countless miles of bicycle Tuolumne County streams and rivers. Great bike trails crisscross Tuolumne County from Strawberry and Lyons Dam to New Melones Lake to Yosemite National Park. Miles of back roads, logging trails and old railroad right-of-ways lead you on an adventure with the best possible views of scenic Tuolumne County. Bring your own bike or join a Gold Country Tour.
