The Fiske Creek Trail is one of the best undiscovered
gems in Yolo County. Breathtaking views of Blue Ridge, a cool
creek, and expansive glades of Blue oak make this a pleasure to hike.
Starting from Rayhouse road, the trail starts off fairly level, then
begins to drop down to the creek. The creek is about 1.5 miles from
the trailhead, mostly downhill (remember that you have to climb up this
hill on your way back, however!). It is 4 miles to the end of the
trail at Fiske Creek Road.
Once you reach the creek after 1.5 miles from Rayhouse, you never really leave
it. You cross the creek at least half a dozen times, and there are plenty
of opportunities to splash in the water!
Distance: The trailhead for Fiske Creek trail is 2.5 miles up rayhouse
road. You can drive or hike this, depending on if the road is open. The Fiske
Creek Trail is 4 miles, one way, from the trailhead off of Rayhouse road to
the end of the trail at Fiske Creek road. The trail starts at elevation 1540
at Rayhouse road, drops to 1200, and slowly rises to 1740 at Fiske Creek Road.
