This 20-mile portion of the South Yuba River canyon stretches from Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park to Bridgeport Covered Bridge. The area includes the longest single-span covered bridge in the world, the steep rugged canyon of the South Yuba River, and the Independence Trail – the first identified wheelchair-accessible wilderness trail in the country.
Or, if you’re the more adventurous sort, try a whitewater rafting trip on the North Yuba or Truckee River with Tributary Whitewater Tours.

With award-winning wines and people who will treat you like family the minute you arrive, you’ll be glad we pointed you in the right direction.
