Upper Bidwell Park Hikes

With its location in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Upper Bidwell Park features a range of terrain perfect for exploring on foot. While you'll find a few easy hiking trails on this side of Bidwell Park, most located in the Upper side are rated moderate or difficult.

Make sure to review hiking best practices and trail etiquette and follow Leave No Trace principles as you explore.

As you read about the different routes, here are some handy definitions, from All Trails, to keep in mind:

  • Loop trails start and end at the same location and follow a single trail or multiple trails to form a loop.

  • Out-and-Back trails start and end at the same location and follow a single trail or multiple trails to an end point and then return along the same route.

  • Point-to-Point trails start and end in different locations. These routes are often part of a multi-day hiking or backpacking trip or segments of a long distance trail. A shuttle pickup may be suggested or required.

All trail distances provided are for the total length of the mapped route. For example, a 10 mile loop, or out-and-back trail, is 10 miles total from start to finish.
