The Sacramento County Hikers led by Rich Blackmarr tackled a beautiful trail along Caples Creek in the High Sierra Mountains. There were two options - a 6 mile out and back along Caples Creek or a 10 mile loop trail (about 1400' of elevation gain) that takes in both Caples and Silver Fork Creeks.
The day was warm and sunny so it was no surprise when 23 hikers turned out for today's hike.
The trailhead is located at the bridge crossing Silver Fork Creek south of Kyburz on Silver Fork Road between Hwy 50 and Mormon Immigrant Road.
