Everyone’s favorite swimming river in the summer, the South Yuba River also offers colorful springtime wildflowers and autumnal foliage as well. This trail passes by some ideal semi-developed campsites (with pit toilets and picnic tables) along the South Yuba, and the Humbug Creek segment features a dramatic waterfall that has carved its way through a bedrock slot. Add the facts that the entire area is rich in Gold Rush history and its trails are accessible nearly year-round, and the South Yuba River and Humbug Trails pretty much cover all bets.
