The American Forks to Sawmill Flat section has a length of 5 miles; you come upon this bit of whitewater on American River. It's a class II+ bit. This section of American River is advised for raft paddlers of medium skill. For your protection you must always check current conditions prior to going whitewater rafting and kayaking. The 4,581 foot variation between top and bottom Fifes Ridge Trail is a pretty place to go backcountry backpacking; it's 13 miles of wonderful backcountry backpacking. Around two days is about the quantity of time you must have to walk the Fifes
