Recreation

So much to do, so little time.

Touting such esteemed ski locations such as Boreal and events like the Amgen Tour (which Nevada City served as the 2010 stage one starting point while Truckee hosted stage two for the 2011 tour), Nevada County flies under the radar as one of the nation’s ultimate playgrounds, which is just the way we like it. And, while skiing and biking may be what attracts a good share of Nevada County visitors (and residents), gold panning, kayaking, rafting, golf, fishing and hiking round out a roster of year-round activities.

The County has enhanced the previous Trail Web Map as a new Recreation Viewer application. In addition to trails, the map can now be used to search for campgrounds, parks and golf courses. The county hopes to add even more recreation opportunities in the future such as disc golf courses and off highway vehicle (OHV) trails. This web map can be accessed by any PC, tablet or smartphone and is available here.
