Description

This "trail" is the long climb that gets you to the top of the Culvert Trail or the beginning of the Connector Trail. The trail begins through the gate on the south side of the Old Foresthill Rd. bridge. It starts as singletrack briefly, turns to dirt road, and then you continue uphill on the doubletrack until you hit Lake Clementine Rd.

We'll ride Lake Clementine Rd until we hit Fuel Break Trail. This is a simple connector fire road between Foresthill Rd. and Lower Lake Clementine Rd. From Lake Clementine Rd, this trail is used to access the Culvert Trail.

This is a downhill trail built for speed with jumps, technical sections, switchbacks, high berms and a CULVERT. Nothing but fun on this trail, no need to find a hill to get your heart pumping - just run this thing as fast as your heart can handle, then hit the Culvert and hold on for the ride.

We'll cross the road and continue on to Confluence Trail. Confluence starts as a fire-road just to throw you off, then quickly narrows to singletrack high above the American River. It alternates from narrow, smooth riding to some very rocky sections along very exposed areas. In some areas, the trail is less than a foot wide with rocks all over it and a drop off of about a hundred feet to the river. This will drop us near our vehicles!
