Looking for an outdoor adventure? Check out Malakoff State Historic Park, the park has many miles of trails to compliment the rich mining history it offers visitors. The stark, moonscape land formations are the result of hydraulic gold mining from the 1850’s to the 1880’s. After a visit to the town of North Bloomfield, you have choices of walks from 1/4 mile to nearly three miles. This Diggins Trail Loop is 2.7 miles long and it feels exotic and other worldly. The day’s adventure is well worth the drive from downtown Nevada City. The winner from last week’s Schad Studios greeting cards is Cathy.
