Ride the Bus to Visit the Heritage Trail Museums Tour

July 23, 2010

You won’t want to miss the 3rd annual Heritage Trail on August 7th and 8th which features 19 museums from Roseville to North Lake Tahoe. Admission is free and all locations are open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.

We are offering three Bus Tours this year. Two of the tours depart from and return to the Gold Country Fairgrounds in Auburn. The Saturday tour, Discover the Mountains, will stop at the Big Bend Visitor Center, Golden Drift Museum, Colfax Area Heritage Museum, and the Forest Hill Divide Museum. The Sunday tour, Explore the Valley, stops at the Griffith Quarry Museum, Maidu Museum, Roseville Historical Society Carnegie Museum, Roseville Telephone Museum and the Rocklin Historical Society Museum. This year Tsuda’s Old Town Eatery will take your lunch order, box it up and bring it to the bus for you! Call them at 530-823-2233 to place your order.

This year for the first time we are offering a Mountain-Lake Bus Tour on Saturday. It will leave from the Sugar Bowl parking area on Donner Pass Road (56 miles east of Auburn). The stops include the Donner Summit Historical Society Museum, Western SkiSport Museum, and the Gatekeeper’s Museum and Watson Cabin in Tahoe City. All passengers on this tour will need to bring a sack lunch.

Call 530-889-6500 to reserve your spot on any of the three bus tours.  Each bus tour costs $10.
