One of the longest trails in Upper Bidwell Park and a gateway to a variety of different loop options, North Rim Trail is a worthwhile trail on its own. As it runs parallel to the edge of the park, you’ll get sweeping views of the park in all directions as you gain elevation, including a rocky look-out point at the trail’s end.
Trail Difficulty: Moderate
