We probably visit the Auburn State Recreation Area more than any other people on Trip Advisor --- that is because we live on a hill that overlooks the North Fork of the American River.
One of our favorite hiking trails takes us from the "Applegate" side of the lake, not the usual dusty & dirty road you take from Foresthill Road.
The "Applegate" side of Upper Clementine gets 5 stars for its pristine beauty and its lack of crowds & automobiles. Since "Our Side Of The Lake" does not allow motor vehicles, its much quieter and not as dusty. Several alternate trails take us to Lower Clementine and yet another popular trail takes you to Codfish Falls and Ponderosa Bridge in Weimar.
