This loop offers some beautiful views of Lake Clementine and both the North Fork and Middle Fork American Rivers. Straddling the Foresthill Divide at elevations ranging from 1600 to 1900 feet, it provides a diversity of flora as it passes through all four American River Canyon eco-systems: yellow pine forest, foothill woodland, riparian woodland, and chaparral. It also passes through open grasslands that are abundant with wildflowers in the spring.
Trailhead West is on Foresthill Rd, 3½ miles east of Foresthill Bridge, at a large parking area on the right (known locally as the Grizzly Bear House turnout).
