Access Info

Come down 80 into Auburn and take the foresthill exit. Take a left or right depends on which way you come from off highway and follow foresthill road. Cross the big foresthill bridge. Soon you will come to a road called lake clementine road and make a turn to go up the hill. Go up and then down the hill until the road turns and you can see the little pull in. If you go on sunday most likely someone will be there and you can ask for help on how to get to the trail.

Lots of sharp exposed rock. Watch you're BB. Fun trail other than the Bike killing rocks. Berms could use some work also but not bad.

 This trail has it all. switchbacks, flow, drops, jumps, two up hills to get to it, banked turns, even a huge culvert you ride thru. The best trail in Auburn area.
