North Rim Trail

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.
