Come join us on our gold country ramble. This tour has a combination of small town charm, lots of history and the fun and excitement of river rafting. Guests on this tour will enjoy cycling on quiet rolling country roads. Well pass beautiful homes, horses, bison and sweeping views of the water. You can choose to camp or stay indoors at the inn down the street. Chef Joe will be cooking dinner for all of us at the Knights Ferry Resort's riverbank campground. Our nature will enchant you at first sight, link. We are always happy to see new tourists here.
The town of Knights Ferry is a small and quiet river town with its main street running along the southern bank of the river. The town boasts a beautiful wooden covered bridge that spans the river above the town. It is the longest covered bridge west of the Mississippi, and you can ride a bike over it. Another local attraction is the Tullochs Mill site. Now an attractive ruin, the site was first a grain mill, powered by falling water from the Sierras, then in the late nineteenth century it was changed over to a generating station for electricity. It's fun to check out the ancient machinery that remains today.
Day two on this tour you have the option of rafting with Sunshine Rafting Adventures and you can choose to do a casual float trip or a real white water adventure. From a bridge in town, weve spotted salmon by the dozens, fighting their way upstream on the Stanislaus River. For those of you who choose to skip the rafting, were also offering a van tour through the gold country where well visit the gold towns of Jamestown and Columbia.
