and Yosemite, linking the towns of the California Gold Country. The county boasts historic and picturesque gold rush towns, award-winning California wineries and micro-breweries, eclectic art galleries, antique shops, and California gold rush museums.
Learn the art of panning for gold in California, or go caving in the variety of natural limestone and crystalline-filled caverns. "Zip" 1500 feet on a zip line 100 feet above the earth. Play a round of golf on professional California golf courses stretched out along canyon ridges in the pines or among 200 year old oaks in rolling terrain. Enjoy biking and hiking trails that criss-cross through the giant Sequoias at Calaveras Big Trees State Park and the Stanislaus National Forest.
Off highway adventures and the famous Stanislaus River Rafting experience beckon the adventuresome, while California fishing and boating, water skiing, camping, horseback riding should be more than enough to do. The many attractions of winter in northern California include first class downhill skiing and snowboarding at Bear Valley Mountain. Enjoy many excellent cross country trails offering silent, pristine scenes of winter wonder and miles of snowmobiling from two-hour to all-day tours around Bear Valley Village or through the woods.
