The Heart of the Gold Country

Pine Grove

Pine Grove

For many generations Northern Sierra Miwok lived, traded and traversed the foothills and mountains of the Sierra Nevada. In 1844, non-Indians first crossed the high Sierra when Fremont’s Expedition, in deep snow, surmounted the range, thanks to several mountain-man immortals- Kit Carson, Alex Godey, Thomas Fitzpatrick. 

The search for gold spread east and into the mountains. Miners and gold-panners could be found all over the Upcountry; in Pine Grove, along the Mokelumne River, in Buckhorn, or in long gone places called Tom & Dick or Pick and Drill. 

For almost two centuries, people have been attracted to Upcountry; the sparkling mountain lakes; grassy meadows with glassy smooth ponds; profuse wildflowers; deep river canyons; dramatic mountain passes; and the rich diversity of recreation and history to be found
