Western States Trail from Foresthill to Rucky Chucky. A lot of downhill but the uphills are sharp. Cool off at the water crossings and bring poles if you want.

First to Review

Access to this trail is not accurate. There is no place to park near the designated start of this trail, as it is all surrounded by private residences.
