Historic site trail at Maidu Museum opens

Updated May 19, 2020
If you are ready to do something a little different, come visit the Maidu Museum & Historic Site, to explore the outdoor trail beginning Thursday, May 21.

While walking along the trail, get a glimpse of the history of Nisenan Maidu who called this place home for thousands of years through bedrock mortars, ancient petroglyphs and native plants. Access to this historic site is generally only accessible with paid admission to the museum, but access to the trail is free at this time.

When visiting, please plan ahead as there are no restrooms available. The trail generally takes about 30 minutes–1hour to explore and we will space out groups of up to 6 people (from the same household) to allow for physical distancing with people not in the same household. No reservations needed at this time, but that might change if we experience large crowds so be sure to check back for updates.

Maidu Museum & Historic Site is located in Maidu Regional Park at 1970 Johnson Ranch Dr. Hours for these trail visits are Thursday-Saturday, 10:00am-2:00pm (last entry at 1:40pm). Groups begin every 15ish minutes and remember, no restrooms are available at the Maidu Museum & Historic Site. The closest public restrooms available are at the main entrance to Maidu Regional Park off of Rocky Ridge Blvd.
