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).
From the convenience and comfort of a full service lodge, you can access the sledding hill, 4 km of cross country trails, a snow shoe loop, and brand new ice rink.
The Little Bald Mountain Trail begins near the historic Robinson Flat Guard Station.
This campground has 40 sites with tables and grills. There are toilets and potable water, as well as a boat launch.
