Mokelumne Coast to Crest Trail


The Mokelumne Coast to Crest Trail is a non-motorized & multi-use trail bisecting California, roughly following the Mokelumne River from the river’s headwaters at the Sierra Crest down to the river’s mouth near Martinez on the Carquinez Strait. The trail is split up into five segments spread over six state counties. You can see the map of the trail system here: http://www.arcgis.com/home/webmap/viewer.html?useExisting=1&layers=601152813c5e4736b4d98fd504412857

The Mokelumne Coast to Crest Trail comes through Calaveras County in the Middle Mokelumne and Upper Mokelumne trails. See beautiful Sierra Nevada vistas, aspens and wildflowers. Planned to eventually create an unbroken trail from the shoreline in the Bay Area to the crest of the Sierra Nevada, it is currently over 1/3 completed. Check the Mokelumne Coast to Crest Trail website to see progress, and to find which areas are currently available:  mc2ct.org | James Bar Trail.

  1. […] minus your snow gear, there is no shortage of hiking opportunities near Valley Springs.  Try the Mokelumne Coast to Crest Trail, the China Gulch Trail at Lake Camanche or “The River of Skulls” nature trail at New Hogan […]
