South Yuba River

Description:

This twelve (12) mile trail carries hikers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders through pine-choked canyons to gentler slopes and open meadows. Expect to see historic flumes and waterworks - you're in Gold Country now! Besides a romatic legacy, the 19th century argonauts left plenty of evidence of hydraulic mining. You can check it out at neighboring Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park. After your history lesson, you might sample the primo swimming holes and rainbow trout pools along the Yuba's roaring South Fork.

Directions:

From Nevada City, follow Highway 49 to North Bloomfield Road and travel ten (10) miles to South Yuba Recreation Lands. From the one lane bridge at Edwards Crossing it is approximately 1 1/2 miles on a dirt/gravel road to the campground.
