Sugarpine Railway Trail

The Sugarpine Railway Trail (Westside Trail), from Strawberry to Fraser Flat Bridge, begins in Strawberry (adjacent to the Old Boy Scout Camp). The trail is marked on the Old Strawberry Road with orange stakes and it is 3 miles long. It was a railroad right-of-way on the south side of the Stanislaus River for logging operations in the Strawberry area.

The trail is mostly wide and flat and is adjacent to the river after the first 1/4 mile. You will see wild flowers, ferns and seasonal creeklets crossing the shaded trail. The river gaging station is at the 2 mile point where there is a flume that carries water downstream. No motorized vehicles are permitted on the trail.
