Gold Country Treasure Hunt

Ride Type: 

Distance/Length: 

300 mi.

Highway: 

Highway 49

Ride your motorcycle in the footsteps of the gold miners in Northern California.

"It's 50 miles north from Nevada City to Downieville. Highway 49 is a famous riding destination and it winds through countless historical sites during its 298-mile duration. Most of the southern portion of the road, however, is so tightly twisted and overly trafficked you can't enjoy the ambience."
