Description

Join Women Who Hike and Merrell Outside for a day of celebrating Public Lands!

It's National Public Lands day and we would like to spend it with our Women Who Hike members!

We will be meeting bright and early Saturday morning to hike the 12 mile loop of Cronan Ranch into the South Fork American River. Listed as a moderate hike, gaining about 2,200 feet throughout the duration. This is a longer hike, please plan to bring plenty of water and lunch/snacks. The weather may be hot so plan accordingly. We recommend dressing in layers. The parking lot should accommodate the group however we always encourage carpooling when possible. Katie, of Merrell Outside will be providing a shoe demo for all the ladies. Should you choose to take the opportunity to test out some incredible boots from Merrell Outside for the hike.

The South Fork American River in the Sierra foothills south of Placerville is one of California’s most popular white-water rivers. The South Fork is where gold was discovered by Europeans in 1849, so the river is also rich in Gold Rush history. Not so long ago, public access along the South Fork was quite limited. The American River Conservancy and the BLM are acquiring land for public recreation and habitat purposes along the river. This easy loop trail, in the recently acquired Cronan Ranch Regional Trails Park, provides a nice ramble through oak and riparian woodlands and foothill grasslands, as well as direct access to the South Fork American River
