Great uphill climb with an amazing downhill mountain bike ride for my next trip. Stunning scenery.

In my opinion this isn't an easy trail. I'd categorize it as moderate. The mountain bikers make this hike dangerous as they come up on you really fast and without warning. Many times there is nowhere to move to get out of the way because the trail is so narrow with a cliff on one side. One biker even crashed into the side of the mountain because there was nowhere for us to move and he came down the hill really fast. Will choose a different trail for hiking next time.

lots of mountain bikes coming around FAST on a narrow trail with a drop off edge, which has you a bit on edge hiking with a younger child, you have to stay alert to bikes at all times. Most of the trail is a climb on the way and one hiker width. Beautiful views but a bit crowded with all the bikes. PS. parking only available on tje side of the road but you still must pay the 10$ fee and they check for parking permits.

Weather was perfect, gushing water sound while walking this trail was good, lot of mountain bikers were riding downhill, so have to be careful, on return spent time at the river climbing the rocks, it was fun. Good family time.

Fun walk with great views of the middle fork of the American River! You should be alert of mountain bikers coming down quickly around narrow corners.
