- There is now a $10 parking fee at the Confluence.
I put the hiking poles away and focused on hiking and getting photos.
The trail "Mossy Rock" took off to the left, narrowing quite a bit,
but intrigued me...almost a deer trail. Bicycles had obviously used it, even recently.
but I had the hardest time catching them in my camera frame!
With persistence, I finally captured shots of a couple of them resting and snacking.

This was a surprising view, caught just between the trees and
shrubs along the trail,
of the old Quarry Bridge crossing the American River
just downstream of the confluence.
|There were several small and shallow water crossings along the way.|
