 Likely In-Season!
Currently, about 50% complete, the Mokelumne Coast to Crest Trail (MC2CT) will eventually be a 300+ mile trail traversing the Mokelumne River watershed from the river’s headwaters at the Sierra Crest down to the river’s mouth near Martinez on the Carquinez Strait. There are three non-connected trail sections currently completed: the western section where the Mokelumne River empties into the San Franciso Bay, the Central Valley section near Camanche and Pardee Reservoirs (this guide) and the eastern section climbing from near Salt Spring Reservior up to Ebbetts Pass along the Sierra Crest.Hike
Hiking is typically done as out-and-back segments from the various trail access points. From the west end, the trail traverses low, rolling, oak-covered hills along the south shorelines of Camanche and Pardee Reservoirs at around 300' elevation, then gently climbs to a high of around 1300' elevation near the east end of the section where it meets CA Highway 49.

The trail is limited to hiking and horseback riding. Trail access points typically provide good parking and restrooms. Trails consist of mainly old ranch roads with sections of single track and are well-signed and maintained. Winter and spring months will typically be cool with possible flowing creeks depending on rainfall, summer and fall months will typically be hot and dry.
