Our County's Fall Foliage (video)

Award-winning producer Cheryl Noble features Nevada City’s fall foliage in Sierra Snapshots. Northern California’s Sierra Nevada has sprung with vibrant fall color. Why is it so magnificent here and why/how do leaves change? This program informs as well as delights the senses.

In our County, favorite strolls include meandering through the Victorian neighborhoods stemming from the historical hamlets near and around Pioneer and Memorial Parks. The Truckee River and Martis Valley also come alive with deep oranges, yellows and reds – you can pass through Martis Valley to get to the popular picturesque shack encompassed with aspens on Highway 267.

Located on the South Yuba River in Penn Valley, Bridgeport offers up a dazzling display of colors. In addition to fall bird watching tours, guests can bask in the autumnal colors and learn more about the area’s history at the annual Fall Festival, which takes place the last Sunday of October.
