Nice secluded trail through a deep wooded canyon. The north fork of the American River is beautiful and has lots of access points you can reach down by the water. Look out for rattlesnakes and black bears if your hiking early in the morning. Seen fresh bear tracks and a coiled up rattle snake right next to the trail. If you can't handle steep inclines both up and down then don't bother. Also if you do not have a deep down respect and understanding for nature DO NOT bother to come! STAY OUT LOSER!
