In 2011 and 2012 the American River Conservancy (ARC) completed the acquisition phase of the Salmon Falls Ranch Project, acquiring 757 acres at the western terminus of the South Fork American River Trail system.  Beginning in fall of 2016, ARC and its partner the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) have worked to complete a 1 mile trail and trailhead facility located off of Salmon Falls Road, approximately 4 miles north of El Dorado Hills, California.

The Acorn Creek Trailhead is a publicly accessible parking area and trailhead for hikers, mountain bicyclists and equestrians, as well as general day-use public recreation associated with trails and wildlife viewing. The Trailhead and the 1-mile connector trail links recreational trail resources that are a part of the South Fork American River Trail (SFART), managed by the BLM, California Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) and ARC.

The public is invited to begin using this trailhead and trail access location as early as May 4th, 2018.  A ribbon-cutting and trail dedication ceremony is scheduled for May 4th, 2018 beginning at 10:00am.

Please contact Taylor Faye at stewardship@arconservancy.org or 530-621-1224 (extension 25) to RSVP so that we can keep a count going of how many people to expect.
