The recently completed trail to Hirschman’s Pond is a great adventure for all ages.  The handicap accessible trail starts from a new parking lot at the bottom of Cement Hill Road.  Follow the winding dirt path to the pond, where you can sit on a large wooden bench and soak up the scenery.  The pond was named for two brothers who owned a cigar shop in Nevada City in the 1850’s and left a wasteland from hydraulic mining in the late 1800’s, but Nevada City with some help from the Bear Yuba Land Trust have done a fabulous job of cleaning up the area and making it available to the public.  The Outside Inn has a map in our office of the trail system around the pond, but you can also find a great detailed report on the Bear Yuba Land Trust‘s website, click here.
