We loved this sweet little, don't blink your eyes or you will miss it, town. Just on the otherside of this Gost Mining Town the county road ends and the fun really begins. The back roads are truly 4 wd, yet our Toyota Highlander 2 wd did ok on the National Forestry Roads. We took a trip all the way up to Lion Rock (I think I remembered that correctly.) There is an increadable view of the forest up there and one breath taking seen after another. Interesteingly there are just a few homes up there. It is hot and dusty, but worth the trip if you are interested in back country cruising. There are some gold mines in that area you may be interested in checking out, although the few that are currently being mind are probably not going to be safe to venture into. There are signs, or there should be signs posted and just be sure to obey them. Otherwise you may want to stop in at the local small store to get some icecream and talk to the people there. They are friendly.
