Route Description for Davis Flat Trail

There is nothing better than a one-way hike, as the views are diverse and fresh every step of the way. As you hike the Davis Flat Trail you will be granted immediate views of the running river and the bounding mountains, but at the end of the corridor, you will notice distant views of the snow-capped Sierra Nevada Peaks.

As this path is shared with off-roaders, it is important to be mindful of passers-by, especially when hiking with pups and children. We suggest transforming this trek into an out-and-back experience if you are hiking. If not, don’t forget to arrange for pick-up or drop off a car at the trail’s end.

Setting out from the trailhead at the Timmer Springs Road bridge, the Davis Flat Trail tracks east along the Timmer Springs Road, gently descending to the riverbanks. Not long after your departure from the trailhead will the path intensely climb a ridge, revealing impressive views of the Kings River below and encompassing mountains. Continuing to trek east, the path will mildly undulate, eventually guiding you past Green Cabin Flat Campground.

Following the dirt route, you will eventually meet the end of your adventure at the Mill Flat Campground. If you did not organize a pick-up or leave a car, simply retrace your footing back along the trail to your vehicle.
