- Mumford Bar Trail is a difficult 3.25 mile, lightly used trail at an elevation of 5,360 feet. This is a popular trail to the North Fork of the American River and is used by hikers and equestrians. Motor vehicles are prohibited on the trail.
At 3/4 of a mile down the trail there is a nice view of the canyon, and straight ahead a view of Royal Gorge. About halfway down the trail the poison oak begins. Be careful, as the leaf is not shiny and looks like a maple. At the bottom of the trail is Mumford Bar Cabin which has been restored but is only for viewing. There is access to the river, about 1/4 of a mile upstream which has some good fishing. You can continue upstream on the American River Trail.
