“the perfect hike for the family”
The Hickman Bridge trail is not difficult and can be completed by any healthy adult or child. No special gear is required other than footwear suitable for walking over rough ground. The hike involves walking approximately one mile each way over a well maintained trail with an elevation gain of 400 feet. The route will require approximately two hours round trip to complete. Much of the route is exposed to the sun and there is little shade available. During hot weather an early morning or evening hike is recommended. Every member of your hiking party should carry at least one liter of water. This hike should be easily accessible year round. Along the route there are eighteen numbered sign posts that are keyed to an interpretive guide available at the trailhead. I highly suggest that you procure one of these guides. The knowledge and learning experience is fun for all ages. Children also have a great time searching for the next sign post which really shortens the hike for them. Navigation for this hike is easy. The route is well marked and signed. A GPS is extreme over kill but I have included the important waypoints for the gizmo junkies. The USGS 7.5' Map titled "Fruita" covers this hike. You should have no problems completeing this hike using only common sense and the interpretive trail guide.
