A panoramic hike along the North Fork American River.
This easy trail is ideal for a panoramic hike along the North Fork American River, much of it is in the shade of conifers and oaks and in close proximity to riparian flora and chaparral. Several side trails lead down to the river, the last one descending to a deep pool beneath the North Fork Dam where spectacular views of water cascading over the dam can be seen.
Trailhead is at confluence area. 1¾ miles south of ASRA Park Headquarters. Take Hwy 49 from Auburn south to Old Foresthill Road at the bottom of the canyon. Continue straight for ¼ mile, cross the curved Old Foresthill Bridge, and park on the right. Trailhead is on the left across from the parking area behind the green gate (#139).
If you’re a golfer who doesn’t like playing the same 18 holes time after time, Timber Creek and Sierra Pines is the place for you.
Rafting the American River offers classic whitewater: crisp, clear, refreshing water flowing over spectacular granite rocks and boulders.
Rafting the American River with River Runners will rekindle your love of the great outdoors.
