The major trail heads are as follows:
Pleasant Avenue in Auburn City. This trail head and horse
assembly area is at the end of the Western States Trail and connects
with trails going to Cool, Foresthill and other park trails in El
Dorado County. Traveling west, the trail connects to Maidu Drive and
the Auburn-Folsom-Sacramento trail system. Plenty of horse trailer
Maidu Drive (off Auburn-Folsom Road), Auburn. This trail connects to the Auburn-Folsom-Sacramento trail system. Limited parking.
Highway 49 at the North Fork American River and the Old
Foresthill Road. Known as the "Confluence", due to the meeting of the
North and Middle Forks, this area is the main trail head area for
hiking & mountain biking. Trails from this area lead to Lake
Clementine, Mammoth Bar, Auburn (Russell Road) and along the North
Fork. Nearby is the Quarry Road Trail, on Hwy. 49. Roadside parking is
available. Often very crowded on summer week-ends.
Quarry Road Trail, Highway 49, 1/4 mile south of the North Fork
American River. Connects with Western States Trail and all trails in El
Dorado County (south of the American River). Limited parking in a small
Cool Fire Station Trail Head. Behind the fire station is the
parking and trail head for the 10 mile Omstead trail and connector
trails. Plenty of parking, including horse trailers.
