Tag: South Yuba Trail
Because this winter is so sunny, we got out our hiking shoes and went down to the South Yuba River canyon to hike upstream from Edwards Crossing. The South Yuba River is a treat regardless of the season. Starting at the Yuba Campground we hiked 4 miles upstream to Humbug Creek and had a picnic lunch by the river. Known as the South Yuba Trail East, it is more remote than the trail from Edwards to Purdons, but just as spectacular. Stop by the Outside Inn’s office for a trail map, if you’re unfamiliar with the trail. And the winner of the tickets to A Midsummer Night’s Dream is Gina T.

Nevada City is so blessed to have so many beautiful places in and around our community. The South Yuba River is a great place to enjoy, regardless of the season. Bring the kids and take a hike along the South Yuba Trail, or pack a picnic and chose a picnic spot. The river canyon doesn’t get a lot of sun in the winter months, but it’s still a real treat to soak up the natural beauty, just pack a sweater. If you need directions, feel free to stop by the Outside Inn’s office for one of local trail maps.

Since the sun is still shining, why not go for a hike on the South Yuba River Trail. Outside Inn employee Trinity Wilson took her dogs Jack and Shelby on the 15 mile stretch from Washington to Edwards. Click on the photos below for a glimpse of the wild and scenic protected area. The Outside Inn thought it was best to share some of these photos, due to the SYRCL grass roots effort town meeting taking place tonight to help support our local state parks from budget cuts.

Fall is a fabulous time to go check out the South Yuba River. It’s a great time to take the kids for a hike along the South Yuba Trail, pack a picnic, sunbath on a rock or go for a mountain bike ride.
Edwards Crossing of the South Yuba River is a great place to take a hike, ride your mountain bike or in the summer time swim in the swimming holes. The section of the South Yuba trail starts just to the left of the bridge and heads downstream. The rolling up and down of the trail provides an excellent opportunity to experience some a peak into the wild and scenic area of the South Yuba River State Park. Stop by the Outside Inn and we’re more then happy to give you directions, a map or sell you some Technu if you fall in the poison oak.
One of the gem’s of Nevada County is the South Yuba River, just minutes from the Outside Inn.

The South Yuba Trail followers the river along for 8 miles, with opportunities for hikers and bikers to join up anywhere from the town of Washington to Purdon Crossing.
From Purdon Crossing you hike upstream, either by the lower trail with access to swimming holes or by the upper trail.

Follow the trail up to the Primitive Camp or all the way to Edwards Crossing or veer off and do the Round … Read More »
