Recommend starting from Beals Point or Granite Bay to avoid the congestion of the American River Bike Trail which is also paved and not to my liking. It's a solid 16 mile+ hike BUT... what's not accounted for on this map is that the last mile of your hike is Cardiac Hill to get up to Maidu, read the topo! This is where the elevation comes in, bring plenty of water!
