VISITING THE YUBA RIVER

Drive only minutes from town and you’ll find the incredible South Yuba River, the inspiration for the festival and the reason why the South Yuba River Citizens League exists. Drive up the hill away from town and you’ll find yourself amidst the pines high in the Sierra. The pleasant town of Truckee is only 45 minutes away and beautiful Lake Tahoe only one hour. Year round outdoor activities include hiking, mountain biking, downhill and cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and climbing.

Directions to the South Fork of the Yuba River at the Hwy 49 crossing from downtown Nevada City: Head west out of town, following Broad Street uphill; veer either left or right when Broad St. forks (both lead to the highway); and turn left at the junction with 49, going north towards Downieville. Drive for 7 miles until you see the sign for parking at the 49 river crossing.
