This classic Gold Country loop climbs from the lower foothills into an almost-Sierra mountain landscape. By starting low, 90 percent of the climbing is knocked o? by mile 20, leaving the later miles for lively descending. Aside from the wonderful miles around this loop, the special attraction today is a visit to Columbia State Historic Park, which comes up early in the ride.
