El Dorado Ranch Hike–Explore the History & Plants at El Dorado Ranch

Saturday, March 2nd, 10am-4pm

The tour and short walks will be led by local historian Dee Owens and botanist Annie Walker. Walking any distance will be optional, as most sites are accessible by vehicle. High-clearance vehicles are necessary. We will drive to Fanny Creek, an area of early Gold Rush activity and mercury mining as well as the scant remains of Cinnabar City, a small town during the 1870s. We will also visit the site of "Milk House Ranch," an early ranch in the area. We will end the day at the Miller Ranch, an example of later 19th Century cattle and Angora goat ranching.
