Auburn-Cool Coffer Dam loop, Auburn or Cool

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.
