Euchre Bar Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"If you’re looking for an easy way down to the North Fork of the American River, this one is a sweetheart. The word switchback has a good name on this well-graded trail. Descend to the river and cross it on the only suspension footbridge across the wild and scenic North Fork. You can discover mining relics and campsites when you continue upriver to Humbug Canyon. The sign at the parking area points you in the right direction for the trailhead—just 500 feet east. A side trail on the left, just after the hairpin turn, is a shortcut through the trees to the trailhead. Otherwise, continue on the road and look to the right for a baby-blue sedan parked backward on the right side of the road. Just beyond that on the right is the welded-metal sign for the Euchre Bar Trail. Your route to the river descends 1,525 feet in just 1.5 miles. So turn right and begin descending the dirt-andleaf- covered trail. Watch your footing: the duff is slippery along the entire route."
