Description

Riding Spring Garden Rd then down Yankee Jims to the North Fork American River.

First 30 mins of the ride is on paved roads, the rest on Yankee Jims Rd is unpaved all the way down to Yankee Jims Bridge.
The bridge and the road are named after a pioneer of the region named Yankee Jim Robinson. He reportedly found gold about 5 miles south of the bridge. Eventually news of his discovery spread, and miners came from all over to dig for gold. A town quickly grew and it was named after him. Yankee Jim really was a bandit on the run and specialized in stealing horses. By 1852, the miners ran him out of town where he eventually headed to southern California, was caught for stealing horses and hanged.

This is Part 2 of 3, part 1 goes down Ponderosa Way to the Ponderosa Bridge and part 3 goes back up Yankee Jims Rd towards Colfax.
