Description

The Darrington Trail, also known as the Salmon Falls Trail, is a popular biking trail outside the small town of Cool.

The Darrington Trail follows alongside the South Fork of the American River and past Folsom Lake, weaving through ravines, woods and meadows. The first mile of the Darrington Trail features the most technical riding and the difficulty eases as the trail progresses. There is some thrilling exposure along portions of the Darrington Trail, where the edge of the trail abruptly drops more than 50 feet down to the river.

The Darrington Trail is usually ridden as an out and back with a turn-around at Peninsula Campground. The ride can be cut in half by leaving a car shuttle at the campground.
