From the Chamber newsletter:
What better way to explore Deer Creek’s rich history and scenic beauty than to follow the Deer Creek Tribute Trail? This multi-use trail is a cultural and ecological path through Nevada City, California. The trail begins in historic downtown Nevada City and moves along scenic backroads and trails.
The Tribute Trail is available for picnics, bicycling, hiking, swimming, fishing, and horseback riding. Walk a portion of the trail and then enjoy downtown Nevada City, or challenge yourself to complete the full 8.6 mile trail!
