A quarantine hike is/was good for the soul. This time of year the trails down by the American River and the Foresthill bridge aren’t so overrun with crowds. The cool weather is refreshing and walking under the bridge is exhilarating. I’ll admit I had never actually seen the Lake Clementine damn, not sure how that is possible but CHECK it’s done now. I decided to go further and see where the lakeside trail went. I was rewarded with a peaceful and serine lake with a few boaters and paddleboarders who gave me some entertainment. I saw and enjoyed this view for a very long time. The trail was not at all maintained and at times I had to scramble so keep that in mind should you find yourself exploring.
