Come discover the many faces of the South Yuba River. Wander through the history of Bridgeport’s covered bridge and wagons, pan for a golden treasure, escape to a hidden swimming hole, roam trails surrounded by wildflowers, and so much more.
Tucked away in scenic and historic Nevada County, South Yuba River State Park has a little something for everybody. The patchwork park boundaries form a “string of pearls” for 20 miles along the river, including four historic bridges, miles of hiking trails, and the nation’s only wheelchair-accessible wilderness trail, the Independence Trail. The river’s beauty and solitude has long inspired the dedication and stewardship of those who know it best. Come experience your state park, and let the river work its magic on you.
