This trail follows an old railroad track, and is primarily on the old access road, beat in by dirt bikes, although it is a non-motorized trail now. At times, one must get on the rail bed to keep going, but will soon see the dirt trail start again.

Access Info

The primary access areas are from behind the Wal-Mart in Placerville and at Bradford Park in Shingle Springs. Just follow the tracks, you'll eventually see the trail.
