THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED DUE TO WEATHER CONDITIONS AND FLOODING.

Real life Solomon Miser will take you from his homestead into the hills of Deer Creek to reminisce about coming to California before the gold rush, the wagon train he led West and his neighbors and early settlers like Jared Sheldon, Bill Daylor and William Hartnell.

Join Deer Creek Hills historian David Scharlach as he tells of the amazing first owners of Deer Creek Hills including a cowboy Casanova, a drunken scoundrel and murderer, the intrepid teenage daughter (and survivor) of George Donner and the rancher whose fight with the government over this land went right up to the U. S. Supreme Court.

This outing will take you over a moderate 3-mile hike. Gates open at 8:45, hike out by 9:30, back by 1pm.

Please note, rain does cancel this event. Please check back on Friday for posted cancellations.
