Unfortunately the Tulip Gardens in Nevada County are closed again this year due to COVID. However, we will be taking a ride to the Empire Mine State park: https://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=499
We will travel up Auburn Folsom Rd., proceed up Placer HIlls Rd. to Meadow vista and stop at the Chevron there. Then head parallel to I80 to Colfax and then along Hwy 174 to the Park.
Admission is $7 and there is a bunch of Gold Mining equipment, exhibits, etc. to view and hopefully the Visitor Center is open to see some of the indoor exhibits.
We will spend an hour or so there, then get back on the road and take the long way back to Auburn with the ride officially ending at the 76 Station at Dry Creek and Hwy 49.
I have not planned a lunch stop, so bring your own snacks to munch on during our walk around the State Park.
Meet at 0930, KSU at 1000 !
Open Event: This event is open to Chapter members, National H.O.G. members and other guests as desired. All riders and passengers must sign a release.
