From Cool to Folsom; this course follows the Nineteenth Century gold miners path along the North Fork of the American River.
This path was worn in by miners in search of a good sand bar for gold panning. Eventually their path would become known as the Pioneer Express Trail: the most express route from the gold fields along the American river to Folsom.
