Take a hike in Nevada County! Empire Mine State Park offers one of the best hikes in the foothills. Just an hour from most Sacramento locations, it is one of the great hikes near Sacramento.
Take Highway 49 north into Grass Valley, CA and drive through town for less than a mile before happening upon the main entrance. You can spend time at the State Park Visitor’s Center, stroll the century-old gardens, or hit the trails.
Grass Valley is just a few miles from Nevada City so if you want to get the weekend started early but still need to put in some time with work, drop in to our coworking space in Nevada City during the week for day use. If you are planning a longer stay, we have bulk day rates.
Enjoy your hike!
