And we’re all dreaming of our upcoming lazy days by the river. SYRCL has some great tips and suggestions for planning your next trip to the South Yuba River State Park, please be aware of cold temperatures and high flows at the beginning of the summer. We always remind folks that swimming levels are often below 100 CSF, so make sure to check the flows. So in the mean time we’re reminding folks of all the amazing outdoor adventures in Nevada County– swimming in Scotts Flat Lake, hiking along the South Yuba River, exploring Empire Mine Historic State Park, hiking along the Deer Creek Tribute Trail in downtown Nevada City. The mountain biking community is going strong, whether you’re taking a lap on the Hoot Trail or joining one of the many events, check out YBONC, You Bet or Tour of Nevada City for more details on ways to hit the trails in the Tahoe National Forest.
