5K – Shasta Cascade
Plumas-Eureka State Park

Quiet Recreation

Plumas-Eureka State Park was established in 1959, and provides visitors with a glimpse into a fascinating period of California history, as well as opportunities for quiet recreation in a beautiful high Sierra mountain setting. The focal point of the park is the museum building and historic area surrounding it. Originally constructed as the miner’s bunkhouse, the museum now serves as a visitor center. Inside, displays depict the natural and cultural history of the park.  Outside and across the street from the museum is the historic mining area, where the Mohawk Stamp Mill, Bushman five-stamp mill, stable, mine office, Moriarity House (historic miner’s residence) and the blacksmith shop depict life in gold rush-era California. During the summer, tours of the buildings and blacksmithing demonstrations are conducted by docents and park staff. Visitors can also enjoy fishing, nature study and hiking within the park. – California State Parks Website

Regional Info & Resources

California’s northeast corner—sometimes referred to as “Upstate California”—is an outdoor-lover’s paradise, with scenic volcanoes, hushed forests, and trout-filled rivers. Expect to find houseboats anchored in cool lakes, countless campgrounds, and inviting trails for hiking and mountain biking. All this, plus friendly towns like Chico and McCloud, and charming rural farms in fertile lands near the Upper Sacramento River. Redding, the region’s largest city, makes a good base, and Lassen Volcanic National Park and majestic Mount Shasta are just two of the many essential places to visit. – Visit California
