Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park, touted as “Bryce Canyon in miniature,” showcases the largest hydraulic mine ever operated in California, as well as the damage wrought by the practice in the Sierra Nevada and the amazing capacity of nature to heal itself.
Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park lies well off the beaten path, but it is well worth the travel time. It preserves a gorgeous swath of the foothills, including a preserved mining town, a secluded waterfall, and the monumental remnants of a remarkable episode in the state’s gold rush history."
