At 3/4 of a mile down the trail there is a nice view of the canyon, and straight ahead a view of Royal Gorge. About halfway down the trail the poison oak begins. Be careful, as the leaf is not shiny and looks like a maple. At the bottom of the trail is Mumford Bar Cabin which has been restored but is only for viewing. There is access to the river, about 1/4 of a mile upstream which has some good fishing. You can continue upstream on the American River Trail.
Directions: From I-80, Take the Foresthill exit and proceed 15.5 miles on Foresthill Road to the Foresthill Ranger Station. 17 miles beyond the Ranger Station you will see the trailhead sign on the left. To access the trail, there is a 5/8 of a mile long road, which starts out as a 2 wheel-drive road, but becomes a 4 wheel-drive road. 2 wheel-drive vehicles should park in the developed area on top.
