Directions: The trail head can be accessed either at the
Auburn Dam Overlook or from the Olmstead Trail (behind the Cool Fire station)
Trail Information: The 15 mile loop trail is a good weekday or weekend training run. Good Climbs either way you go with variations for different trails along the way...portions of the course follow the WS 100.
Miscellaneous Information: The trail from Cool via the coffer dam trail may be closed beginning Winter 2002 to rechannel the American River. Talk has been that a EIA could include a foot bridge or fiord location once the work is complete.
