Distance: 3 miles
Estimated Time: 1 to 2 hours
Below the town of Midpines, look for the Briceburg Visitors Center on the left-hand side of the road. Part of the Merced River Wild and Scenic River Corridor, Briceburg was once home to gold mines and it’s still possible to pan in the river. Park in the Day Use parking lot, then walk across the suspension bridge. At the end of the bridge, take a right and follow the former route of the Yosemite Valley Railroad up-river. The trail continues about three miles and along the way, you’ll discover wildflowers and beautiful views of the Merced River as it rushes through the steep mountain passes.
