Let's Enjoy Clark's Hole!
Hi Hikers! Let's enjoy a summer SPARK tradition, now sharing with Hikers with Kids and go out to Clark's Hole. Bring towels, lots of sunscreen, plenty of water and snacks, floaties, tubes for floating, and life jackets for the little ones if you want. It is pretty casual, I will be there about 11 am, come whenever and stay as long as you want. There is a great rock for jumping off of but ***please keep an eye on your little ones!*** The hike upstream to the swim area is about a mile, water shoes or tennis shoes are best. It is a moderate hike, not too hard for even young ones. Directions: Take Highway 49 from Auburn south for almost 3 miles. When 49 splits, stay to the left (straight) and continue a short distance on Old Foresthill Road. Cross the bridge and park on either side of the road. Pay at the ranger station for parking ($10 per car). There are restrooms here but not up at the swim area. The Lake Clementine Trailhead (Gate 139) is near the parking area. We will head up the North Fork of the American River on this trail about one mile to Clark's Hole. Post questions if you have any, day of up in Auburn I don't know that I will have cell coverage to respond to texts. See you then.

What we're about

Get together with other hikers with kids. If you have an idea for a hike and would like some company, everyone is welcome to initiate an activity and we’ll gladly post it. “Plan the hike and they will come". Our average hike is generally 2-5 miles and there is usually a nice lake or picnic area for folks to stop short and catch us on the return if our little hikers would rather collect pine cones or chase lizards. We also do less hikey stuff like picnics, roller skating, swimming, etc. All ages are welcome. A brief BIO and your PICTURE are required. We do not require a fee to participated, but if you'd like to contribute to help offset our expenses, we sure appreciate it. Enjoy!
