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?

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.
