Summer is here and it’s time to cool off at the South Yuba River. I’ve written plenty of blog posts on hikes, bike rides and swimming spots on the river, click here for a great list of local outdoor activities, but it’s always fun to revisit the same places. For these photos we started at 49 Crossing and hiked upstream to Hoyt’s Crossing. A friendly reminder for those of you who want to help maintain our beautiful river please remember to pack out anything you bring with you. The SYRCL River Ambassador Program is a great program that helps educate folks about river clean ups, click here for more info. This year marks the 15th anniversary of South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) achieving state Wild & Scenic Rivers Act protection for 39-miles of the South Yuba River. While summer is one of the more popular times to visit the river, there are ways to enjoy the river through out the year, click here for some of the SYRCL Staff suggestions. What’s your favorite part about a trip to the river? Leave a comment and share. If you’re unfamiliar with places to go, feel free to stop by the Outside Inn’s office and we’ll happily give you directions. Happy summer!
