Clementine Trail to Clark’s Pool is a 4.6 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Auburn, California that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Horses are also able to use this trail.

Lake Clementine Trail leads to the spot where the North Fork Dam meets the rocks for an outstanding view of cascading water. Trail passes under the tallest bridge in California, Foresthill Bridge. The waterfall is absolutely amazing. There are rarely any people at the base of the fall but there is an abundance of poison oak so you need to be careful. Another good feature about this hike is about a quarter of a mile into the hike you pass by Clark’s Pool – a fairly popular swimming hole. Despite being in the middle of the river, it is actually quite warm and very refreshing – especially since the first half of the hike is totally unshaded and gets rather hot.
