Bus Tour 2014

As in years past, there will be a Saturday and Sunday bus trip available for those who prefer to leave the driving to someone else.

The Saturday trip into the foothills and mountains pulls out of the Auburn Fairgrounds parking Lot at 8:45 am and will make stops at the Skisport Museum, the Golden Drift Museum, the Colfax Area Heritage Museum and the Forest Hill Divide Museum before returning to Auburn.

The Sunday trip has two new stops this year for a total of seven museums! The bus will leave the Auburn fairgrounds parking lot at 8:25 am and make stops at the Lincoln Area Archives Museum, the Roseville Historical Society’s Carnegie Museum, the Roseville Fire Museum, the Roseville Telephone Museum, the Maidu Museum and Historic Site, the Rocklin History Museum and the Griffith Quarry Museum.

The cost per person for either bus trip is $10.

On Saturday you can pack your own lunch or you can buy a burger, fries and drink from a local store across from the Golden Drift Museum. On Sunday it would be best to pack a lunch, the Maidu Museum and Historic Site will have snacks and refreshments available to supplement your lunch.

If you have questions or would like to reserve your seat on either bus (or both) please call 530-889-6500.

Trail Guides are In!


Our Trail Guides, which include 20 museums worth of descriptions, locations, regular hours, and Heritage Trail special events, have gone to the printer. You'll be able to pick up a copy at any participating museum shortly, but if you're a go getter who's not into waiting, here's a link to an online version suitable for printing and planning your Heritage Trail route.
