Vichy Springs offers over 700 acres of hiking trails for your enjoyment. As you wander the property you will be treated to nature at its loveliest including a year round stream, glimpses of animal life and in spring one of the most spectacular wildflower displays in the region. Wander through the pristine foothills and commune with nature. Five main trails are available for your enjoyment or explore the countryside on your own.
The Chemisal Falls trail is a 30-40 minute (each way) hike along Little Grizzly Creek. As you trek along and across the creek several times, keep your eye out for a variety of wildflowers. As you reach the 40-foot falls, refresh yourself under the ferns that are kept green from daily baths of mist or take dip in the pond at the base of the falls.
The Vista Point Trail is a gorgeous 30 minute (each way) hike through the canyon and up and along the mountain ridge. Wildflowers and deer abound on the trek. The trail rises steeply above the valley floor leading to bench. A perfect hike for early morning or sunset, the vista point offers a breath taking panoramic view of the valley below.
The Cinnabar Mine trail is 90 minutes (each way) that runs through some beautiful forests and meadows until finally reaching the mine itself. A more aggressive trail than the others, the Cinnabar Trail allows one to explore the once operational mine. Bring water and a lunch or snack and enjoy a great day hike.
The Loop Trail is a brisk 20 minute walk. Beginning along the same path as the Vista Point Trail, the Loop Trail follows along the property boundary and loops back along Little Grizzly Creek and the resort itself.
Pond Creek Trail
The Pond Creek Trail is an enjoyable 20 minute stroll around a beautiful pond. This relaxed path is great for an early morning or after dinner stroll.
* Hike at your own risk. Please wear safe hiking shoes and beware of Poison Oak and reptiles in the summer.
