Yard located at 20701 Bear Trap Springs Road outside Nevada City, CA, 95959.

From Tahoe travel west on 1-80 to Hwy 20 and drive east to Hwy 49 in Nevada City. Turn rt soon as you enter and take Hwy 49 towards North San Juan/Downieville.

From Sacramento travel east on 1-80 to Auburn and take HWY 49 exit north in the direction of Grass Valley / Nevada City. Turn right on HWY 49 to head towards Grass Valley/Nevada City.

As you near Grass Valley HWY 49 becomes a divided road which continues through Nevada City. At the end of the divided road on the outskirts of Nevada City, turn left to continue on HWY 49. HWY 20 continues straight at this point and eventually joins 1-80 on the way to Donner Summit. (HWY 49 and HWY 20 coincide in Grass Valley and Nevada City.) Make sure you stay on HWY 49.
Travel 7 miles on HWY 49 to reach crossing of South Fork Yuba River. Travel another 3.7 miles on HWY 49 past the river and then turn right on Tyler Foote Rd. A crude sign before this intersection lists Malakoff Diggings State Park.
