  • Hike Description: Dale Dr, Robie Point Fuel Break, Tamaroo Bar, Riverview, Contour, Overlook, WST. We’ll make a 5-mile loop down to Tamaroo Bar on the American River, enjoy a break on a rocky beach beside the river, and learn a little about early gold and water claims here. Views include remains of the Auburn Dam project as well as natural looking sections of the river. To return, we ascend to the old Mountain Quarries RR bed and follow it until we turn steeply up and back to our start. Moderate pace, 5 miles with 900’ total climb including one  300’, 0.2-mile ascent near our finish. Route is a mix of gravel and paved roads, old RR bed, and narrow trails.
