Wat je gaat doen

Join us as we explore ancient Native American trails, camps, and villages, and search for new, previously undiscovered sites.

We will be hiking a mostly-level 3-5 mile trip, navigating the low altitude grasslands of the Sierra Nevada foothills near Cool, California. The trip leader will discuss the history and natural world of this area, sharing his knowledge of the local Native Americans, as well as the flora, fauna, and geology of the area.

Our trip will also explore new areas, if desired, in search for previously unknown, undocumented cultural resources. Any new sites will be passed along to the North Central Information Center for historical preservation. This is your chance to find history!

After the hike, participants will receive a detailed map and photos, if desired, from the trip. This is a kid-friendly, dog-friendly walk, so plan on taking your time!

Your guide, Rich Cross, has obsessively explored the northern Sierra Nevadas and deserts of Western Nevada for over 30 years, getting out on the trails several times a week. He is Field Trip Director with the Nevada County Gem & Mineral Society and a volunteer with Tahoe National Forest, assisting their archaeological team in finding new sites. He is a master of the backcountry, capable of navigating in pretty much any conditions, completely comfortable both off trail and on, rain or shine, night or day. Mr. Cross has also had extra training in wilderness-specific first aid.

Waar je naartoe gaat

Where we go depends upon YOU!

At the beginning of the trip, we will assess our abilities and what you wish to see, and guide the hike accordingly. A typical hike will be 2-5 miles and last 2-3 hours, as we hike from site to site, crossing open meadows and fording the occasional stream. The Native sites are not typically located right on the trail, so we will be leaving the trails as necessary.

Richard is great. He is very knowledgeable and does a great job at showing us details on the indigenous lifestyle, native flora and fauna. We learned so much while hiking in a beautiful location. It was a great experience and we hope to do it again in the future.

An excellent adventure! We had walked nearby paths before, but did not know anything about the sites just off the trail: grinding pits, abandoned wells, village locations and even some interesting old garbage dumps! Richard is extremely knowledgeable, pleasant and easy to communicate with. If you enjoy walking through history, take a hike!

Rich was a great leader on our amazing hike through the Auburn State Recreation Area. He is extremely knowledgeable on the history of the area and knows the back country trails and surrounding areas quite well. The hike was memorable and educational, and it was definitely worth the cost of admission! Thanks Rich, and I'm sure our paths will cross again. -David and Parker

If you are interested in history, plants and their uses, or just going on a casual hike through beautiful country, then this experience is not to be missed. Richard is incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the area and local plant life, and we learned so much from him! Richard is friendly, funny and overall a great person. This was my first Airbnb experience and I loved it! I’ve been telling my family and friends how enriching it was and I really believe we all should be engaging in more experiences like this! We had opportunities for lots of fun discoveries on our trip and chances for Hands-on learning. If we are ever in the area again we would most definitely contact Richard for another hike, knowing we learn all kinds of new things!! I strongly recommend this experience!!

Richard brought along some rock samples and an old indian mortar and pestle as part of a little background information and demonstration before the hike. He was very familiar with the area and led us off trail to some unique spots. There were great views and amazing bits of history to see during the hike. It ended up only being my girlfriend and me on the hike, so we had a more 1 on 1 type interaction with Richard. He is a very talkative and friendly guy. We ended up all going across the street for beers together after the hike.

Rich was patient about my late arrival. It was something out of my control. After the hike he guided me through a local museum. His love of the natural world and appreciation for ancient cultures felt like the sharing of a precious gift. I will hold the memories of this wonderful trip close to my heart for a long time
