Description

This trail is pretty straightforward. There are no intersections where you could get lost, you just follow the trail and enjoy. The downhill at the end rolls really well, and is probably one of the best descents in the Nevada City area. The trail ends in a nice picnic area in the old town of North Bloomfield. It was an old mining town during the gold rush, and has since been abandoned.
