4.21.17 ... South Yuba River State Park

Hike Details: Elevation - low of 575' to high of 935' Location - South Yuba River State Park - Bridgeport Covered Bridge Mileage - 5 miles Hiking time - 3 hours (lots of picture taking!) Route - We parked in the lot right near the covered bridge and Visitor's Center (fee area). There's also a fee area parking lot across the river. Weather - Not too warm, not too cool, sunny and perfect for hiking! I'm so lucky to have fun friends who are willing to follow me along on these hikes! It's hiking season again! Our main goal for this hike was to see some wildflowers. With all the rain we've had, we were hopeful there would be plenty of them. We did see some pretty flowers, but I wouldn't say it was bursting with them. But we also loved the view of the river throughout the hike and the beautiful green hills. We started on the North side of the river near the covered bridge and hiked up the hillside following the Point Defiance Loop T
