Parking is an issue at our popular Hidden Falls Regional Park. The park sometimes becomes overcrowded, especially on weekends and holidays. To get the most enjoyment from your trip, Park visitors are strongly encouraged to carpool and arrive early, check the updates and use the webcam on our website:

Limited portions of the parking lot are designated for equestrian parking. As there are a small number of these spaces, non-equestrians are requested to park in stalls designated for other vehicles.
DURING PARK FULL CONDITIONS
In order to ensure visitor safety, improve the experience within the park, and respect the neighboring community, when the parking lot is full, guests are asked to make alternate plans. This may include visiting a nearby park instead, and coming back to visit Hidden Falls on a different day. Visitors cannot park along Mears Drive, Mount Vernon Road, or any of the private roads to access Hidden Falls.
The California Highway Patrol enforces parking regulations on roadways outside the Park, and the Sheriff’s Department enforces rules within the Park. An alternative parking location for carpooling is available about 5 miles away, at the Placer County Government Center, 3091 County Center Drive.
