Outlining the western
side of the Sierra Nevada Foothills in California is Highway 49.
It passes through Sierra, Nevada, Placer, El Dorado, Amador, Calaveras,
Tuolumne, Mariposa, and Madera Counties. The best way to experience
California's Gold Rush history is to explore the wonderful towns and rural
areas of Hwy 49. Below are links to information
on the different counties through which Hwy 49 runs. We offer pictures,
history, information on motels, real estate, schools, churches, and Fun
Stuff to do!
