This short trail connects the West Ridge
Trail to the American River Trail.
The trail begins at the kiosk on Cronan Ranch Road. There are no technical sections.
There is a splendid view of the Cronan Ranch valley towards the top of the climb, and then it's 'over the top' for a steep descrent.
You can branch off to the left onto the American River Trail towards highway 49, or continue downhill - now on the American River Trail - which eventually leads back up to Skunk Hollow.
This trail is shared with hikers and horse riders.
