The trail offers a variety of overlooks as it meanders along the river, passing through dense vegetation, past old cabins and mining sites, and through small meadows.
The trail crosses Tadpole and New York Creeks, which can flow heavily in spring and could be difficult to ford. The trail crosses private property in places and care should be taken to stay on the trail. The trail is closed to all motorized vehicle use.
Directions: From I-80, Directions #3: Take the Foresthill exit and proceed 15.5 miles to the Foresthill Ranger Station. Continue on Foresthill Road for 25 miles to Sailor Flat Road and turn left. Go one mile to the trailhead for Sailor Flat Trail. This trail leads to the American River Trail.
