Hike, bike, or horseback ride the Arnold Rim Trail, a mid-elevation non-motorized trail in the central Sierra Nevada Mountains. Connecting the many wonders of public lands along the Ebbetts Pass National Scenic Byway stretch of Hwy 4 to its communities, this beautiful trail creates a high level of access for its residents and visitors. You’ll discover breathtaking vistas with panoramic views stretching from Mt. Diablo in the East Bay Area to snowy Mt. Lyell on the high eastern slopes of the Sierras near Yosemite, then dive down into canyons with streams coursing through the shade of older growth forests of cedar, pine, fir and oak. High rocky promontories, native acorn grinding rocks, a magnificent waterfall, many birds and wildlife of all kinds, and a lake lie along its current completed section in the part of the Stanislaus National Forest known as the Interface.
