    Route Description for Wuh-Ki’o Trail

    The Wuh-Ki'o Trail is a charming nature walk through the hillsides and through the corridor of the San Joaquin Valley. This scenic provides a great workout, motivating you with High Sierra views along the way. Note much of this path is exposed, and in the summer months, the vegetation dries, making for an unbearably hot hike in the summer heat. When tackling this route in the warmer months, we encourage you to head out early to beat the heat and the crowds! Pack plenty of water to stay hydrated along the route.

    Setting out from the trailhead, the Wuh-Ki'o Hike follows the Pas’san Ridge Trail northwest down into the river valley. Following the dirt route, you will intersect with a few snowmelt streams before reaching the bridge over the San Joaquin River. From here, revel in the views of the granite-lined river bounded by the grassy mountains. Continue hiking over the bridge, and the Pa’san Ridge Trail will divert you southwest. At the next intersection, merge onto the Wuh-Ki'o Trail along the opposite side of the river, revealing views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the south.

    Eventually, you will reach the trail’s end at the banks of the San Joaquin River. From here, begin your return back to the trailhead, retracing your steps the entire way.
