Miner’s Ravine Trail Loop

If you enjoyed wandering around outside the Maidu Museum, you might want to continue on to the Miner’s Ravine Trail Loop. Bike riders love it.  Walkers are very happy with this trail because it’s fairly flat – no big climbs or downhill tumbles.  A creek runs along the trail so there is always a place to splash some cool water on your face if you get overheated.
