The site of the oldest, largest, and richest gold mine in California, this state site, from 1850 to its closing in 1956, produced almost six million ounces of gold. The park contains many of the original mine buildings, the owner's cottage, and the restored gardens and grounds, as well as the entrance to 367 miles of abandoned and flooded shafts and tunnels and 12 miles of trails for hikers, bikers, and horseback riders.
