Independence Trail

Step back in time and check out the Inpendence Trail, the walk, located 5 miles out of town off Highway 49, follows the ditches and flumes from the Excelsior Canal, built back in the 1850’s.  The 1 1/2 mile section wheel chair accessible trail is suitable for all ages, with more difficult options down to Jones Bar for those who want a challenge.  Can you and your crew spot a newt?  Photos from the Independence Trail West provided by Val Camp.

If you’ve hiked to the waterfall on the west bound section of the Independence Trail and want to try something different head back to the trail head and take the 2 mile walk up the east section of the trail and check out the rock arch.  Photos by Katie White.
