EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCES IN THE GOLDEN STATE

What You Need To Know About Nevada City and Grass Valley

Once California's third largest city, Nevada City, the "Queen City of the Northern Mines", has much to offer today's visitor. The historic district, with its gas lamp lit streets and beautifully preserved gold rush era buildings will transport you back to another time. Enjoy fine restaurants, theater and other cultural events. Visit unique shops or tour the town in a horse drawn carriage.

Although winter snows don't linger long on the ground here, some of the high Sierra's best skiing, both downhill and cross-country, is barely an hour's drive away via Hwy. 20. Experience the gold rush at Empire Mine and Malakoff Diggings State Parks, or bike the trails of Tahoe National Forest. Photograph the spring wildflowers and fall colors. Swim, boat, raft and fish the local rivers and lakes.

Hiking and Biking

The Sierra foothills are teeming with trails suited to all manner of hikers and bikers. They are responsible in large part for the migration of lowlanders on any given weekend to the Sierra Foothills and to Nevada City in particular. The Nevada County/City Parks and the Forestry Departments have endeavored to maintain well used favorites and add new trails regularly. There are varying degrees of difficult from Handicap accessible to Extreme.
The 1st link below is to the "Tour of Nevada City Bicycle Shop" website with many listed trails and their degree of difficulty.
