Description

Sierra Plumas Eureka State Park is located high on the east slopes of the Sierra Nevada. The 7,400-foot Eureka Peak in the park sits on top of what was once a large body of precious metal. Hardrock gold mining was once the primary activity in the region from the 1850s until the Second World War. The park contains the Mining History Museum that features displays on mining and pioneer life in the area. The 6,700 acre park protects the remains of the Mohawk Stamp Mill and several other buildings. The park features hiking and fishing and, in winter, cross-country and downhill skiing. Hikers can enjoy more than ten miles of trails. No laundry facilities at the park.
