Waterfall hiking near Sacramento - Emigrant Gap Falls help

Hello,

We are looking to drive 1-2 hours from Sacramento to hike to a waterfall (preferably one you can swim in too). I found a reference to Emigrant Gap Falls, but I have not found a lot of details as to how to get there, trail and type of swimming. Can anyone help or suggest other places?

Thanks,

Grace

Just got back from the old swimming hole with the kids and grand kids. Has not changed in the many years I've been going there. My father said he first took me there in1946 though i don't remember as I was only one year old. I am now almost 70 and happy to say that four generations of our family have enjoyed the old swimming hole and falls and will for many years to come. When I was in my childhood we never saw anyone else and kind of considered it our own little hideaway. It is now enjoyed by many And if you get the oppurtunity I strongly suggest you check it out.

Andy --- Welcome to the forum. I see you joined today. This is an old thread but places like that don't change much, so it's still pertinent information.

You might want to get rid of one of your posts, as it is a duplicate.

Brings back some old memories (Girl Scout camp at Emigrant Gap, and I'm almost as old as you are). Thanks for your story of a wonderful outdoor family outing.
