South Yuba Trail carries hikers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders to sights of historic flumes and waterworks.

The South Yuba Trail courses 12 miles of pine-chocked canyons, gentle slopes and open meadowlands. The trail is open to hikers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders. Expect to see historic flumes and waterworks - you're in Gold Country now! Besides a romantic 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.
