We found an incredible treasure in my own backyard! It is called the North Fork of the American River. Deep canyons, a gorgeous pristine river, rugged wilderness, untouched beauty. And numerous waterfalls falling along the many creeks going into the river, just waiting to be discovered. There are many hiking trails going down into the north fork, but they almost all have difficult access. Those canyons are steep! Maybe its better that way. Less people will want to go into this area because its so hard to get there, and that means it will remain unspoiled.
