North Fork American River Trail Plan
Placer County is growing very quickly. To provide current and
new residents and visitors with adequate recreation resources,
Placer County and the California Department of Parks and Recreation
working on a proposed project to extend the existing network of
trails throughout the American River Canyon. Part of the Auburn
State Recreation Area, these trails already provide a variety of
recreational opportunities, like hiking, biking, and equestrian
activities. An environmental impact report is being prepared.
The North Fork American River Trail project is proposed as a
multiple use trail that will begin at the confluence of the North
and Middle Forks of the American River and end at Ponderosa Bridge,
approximately 12.6 miles upstream.
