Trail Description
About this trail
Connector Trail between Cronan Ranch and Salmon Falls. 2 Miles with switchbacks to first summit (highest point on trail). Trail is up/down most of the way few flats. Fun switchback section at about 4 miles. Drops from ridge summit to follow along the American River a ways. Fun Ride but for me very physical, would rate about twice or more the difficulty of Salmon Falls ride.

Review: Fun trail that can be ridden from Cronan Ranch to Salmon Falls or the other way which is how I recommend it be ridden. Rocky climb for a few miles with switchbacks, but nothing too steep. It has some longer climbs than Salmon Falls but only a couple of steep climbs. Great views of the river at some points and towards the end (Cronan Ranch side) there is a river access trail if you feel like some water to cool off in the summer. Some good downhill rips with some flowy sections as well.

Review: Nice ride, clear signage, very exposed with little shade. All up or down with no flat areas. Not technical ride. Tough on a singlespeed.
