Tuolumne Holidays

This is Mother Lode country, where the wild beauty of the Sierra Nevadas meets the spirit of the 49ers. It's where Yosemite Park lays on some knock-out landscapes and the gold mines of yesteryear lie silent, long-ago emptied of their riches. It's a stunningly scenic place where the here and now of modern America is all around, but you can still feel the ghost of the Gold Rush at your shoulder.

For anyone who's ever dreamt of prospecting for gold, Tuolumne County, California holidays deliver on all fronts. Old mining towns like Angels Camp, Jamestown and Columbia are scattered like nuggets across the landscape and come complete with historic buildings and relics from their boomtown days. The bordellos and saloons may be gone now, but Columbia has even kept hold of those, thanks to its Historical Park. And you can still pan the river for gold.

Gold and the quest for it has helped shape the landscape here, but so have the mighty geological forces that pushed up the Sierra Nevada mountains. The result is some spectacular scenery, making for great hiking country, especially in the Stanislaus National Forest and Emigrant Wilderness. Here you can walk the trails in solitude past towering trees, swim in glittering lakes, fish along 800 miles of rivers or grab a paddle and go white water rafting.

Elsewhere you can check out the county's wineries, taking some time to sample the produce; indulge in a dose of steam train nostalgia at the Railtown 1897 State Historic Park, and enjoy exploring towns like bustling Sonora with its Victorian buildings, stores and cafés. And don't forget nearby Yosemite, easily accessed just west of Groveland. The drive to the park is scenic enough, but the sights at the other end are nothing short of breathtaking.

Columbia State Historic Park

The spirit of the Gold Rush is alive and well in Columbia, where part of the town is preserved as it was in the mid 1800s and patrons dressed in period clothing do business in the style of yesteryear. There's historic buildings, stagecoach rides, shops selling 19th-century goods, restaurants, saloons, live events and the chance to learn all about the town's gold mining past.

Railtown 1897 State Historic Park

No one with a hankering for the days of steam will want to miss this park's three glorious Sierra locomotives - the stars of many a movie and TV show, including High Noon, Bonanza and Little House on the Prairie. You can enjoy behind-the-scenes tours as well as taking a ride through Mother Lode country with the engine chugging and the whistle blowing.

Yosemite National Park

The endless wonders of Yosemite are a must-see on Tuolumne County holidays. Mother Nature puts on a spectacular show all through the park with enough soaring mountains, granite cliffs, thundering waterfalls, Giant Sequoia trees and unbeatable vistas to take your breath away. There's a stand-out landmark round every corner - and it's just next door.

Go for Gold!

There's gold in them thar hills! There's still nuggets waiting to be unearthed around these parts, plus a clutch of places where you can seek your fortune - especially around Jamestown and Columbia. Heft a pick to dig gold out of the ground or spend some time panning in the river and you might even strike it lucky!

Jumping Frog Jubilee

If you happen to be in Angels Camp during the third week of May, you can throw yourself into the town's annual festival. There's a celebrated frog-jumping contest, pageants, cook-offs, arm-wrestling tournaments, live music, carnival rides and a rodeo. It's as mad as a box of frogs!
