Trail Ride in California’s GOLD Country

Here’s another ride in GOLD Country. It’s to a small waterfall on Tyler Foote Crossing Road. The road was built in 1913 as a “fast way” to bring gold from the mine(s) in the Aleganey area to Nevada City, Ca… and goods back to the miners.

Before 1913 when the road was constructed, there was no way to/from Alleghaney in the winter and it took five days to get to Nevada City by wagon in the summer. After the road was built, the trip was shortened to 3 days year round. On this trip I cover about 20% of the road in less than an hour… and I was taking it easy.

I hope you enjoy the video:
