We had escaped the North East cold for a visit with my daughter and her husband in CA and decided to do some hiking. The Darrington Trail turned out to be quite a nice choice. Unfortunately, it's an in-out trail, so we did not hike...More

Several of my co-workers are active young folks and his was a fun day out for a walk. Others were jogging, riding bicycles, a few on skates. Nothing like fresh air and sunshine ... oh yeah !!

This where the raft trips down the South Fork American River get out and also is the entrance to biking and hiking trailheads. There's really not a lot to do right there EXCEPT: The bridge usually has a huge rope swing hanging from the bottom...More

I have a love hate relationship with this ride. I don't like the first mile because of the technical climb and drop off and I grumble through it knowing that it gets better and better as you make your way through the loop part.

This trail gives a nice view of the south fork. It's mostly used by bikers, but is good for hiking, as well. There is some shade along the way, but not a lot. It has a fair amount of up and down, but overall, is...More

Its the alternative trail to the Auburn Ravine area. It is technical and rocky, but the lakeside and hill top views are worth every pedal stroke.
