Take hwy 49 from Auburn Down toward the American river. Arriving at the confluence hwy 49 turns right toward the town of Cool. Do not turn. Continue straight for another 200 yards. Ther will be parking along the left side of the road. The trailhead is just before the bridge on the left. It starts out as double and singletrack. After a moderate climb on pavement you come to a dirt road on the right which is blocked by rocks. Take this trail and follow it across a couple of roads and down to the descent of the opposite river canyon from the one you started on. The descent is fairly simple but for a few technical sections requiring some manuvering through tight rock sections. The trail ends back at the opposite side of the bridge where you started. It's about 8 miles long.* Review edited 3/4/2008
