Heart of a Cool Trail Run
Race Technical Difficulty Score (RTDS) =3
When you tell people you live in a town called Cool, you always get a response about the name. “That’s really its name? Wow, that is so cool!” If they know where it’s located, they may question, “How do you deal with driving that canyon every day?” We get used to it. And some of the 4000 or so of us who live in Cool, also work here! Most of us agree upon how fortunate we are to be part of this small, unique community. It’s located in the beautiful Northern California foothills, surrounded by two forks of the American River. The heart of Cool boasts stunning views, encompassing miles of open land, river and trails that can take you all the way to Sacramento and Tahoe right from our backyard. But more importantly, it is also home to a close-knit community containing our jewel, the one-of-a-kind, Northside School.
