Clementine Trail to Clark's Pool is a 4.6 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Auburn, California that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Horses are also able to use this trail.
Lake Clementine Trail leads to the spot where the North Fork Dam meets the rocks for an outstanding view of cascading water. Trail passes under the tallest bridge in California, Foresthill Bridge. The waterfall is absolutely amazing. There are rarely any people at the base of the fall but there is an abundance of poison oak so you need to be careful. Another good feature about this hike is about a quarter of a mile into the hike you pass by Clark's Pool - a fairly popular swimming hole. Despite being in the middle of the river, it is actually quite warm and very refreshing - especially since the first half of the hike is totally unshaded and gets rather hot.
Beautiful hike. Definitely beginner friendly.
Fun little hike! So much water right now, it was beautiful. It's worth climbing through all of the rocks at the bottom to get a closer view of the dam.
We walk here 8 miles today it good trail walk
We came too early for the fog to have cleared up. It wasn't completely clear up by the time we were done at 10:30. however it was still beautiful!
Worth doing. Easy and worth the falls off the dam at the end.
$10 parking, but you can park on the Georgetown side of the bridge and start there. Parking is free on that side. The hike to lake Clementine is beautiful, with many places to stop off and rest. There are also many other trails you can explore near the trail head. There are bathrooms the bridge, as well as near Lake Clementine. Though the waterfalls are not natural falls, still very pretty hike, and fun spot for a picnic.
Great photo opps here. Always a rainbow above the dam. Water splashes down on you. Very loud and a grand finale for having walked all that way. My son loved it. Easy hike. Lots of sun in the beginning and at the end. Lots of people on the trail. Very popular.
Great hike. not to hard not to easy. beautiful!
Perfect for all ages, nice scenery & such a peaceful hike. Parking sucks and you have to pay a 10 fee
Great local hike, great for kids.
will definitely do again
went on this trail first thing this morning and it was really nice because most of the trail was shaded on the way out. It's an easy trail and has a besutiful scenery. The only down side was there was a bit more traffic than I'd like and there's a $10 parking fee. If you decide to go later in the day wear lots of sunscreen because it gets sunny and hot. overall I enjoyed the hike and might do it again sometime.
