This review is for Red Hill loop trail on Red Hill Rd. outside of Chinese Camp.

Great area to hike or ride horses and see wildflower and the rolling hills of the area. There is a large area for parking off the road. Picnic areas and clean restrooms area available. There are areas for horse trailer parking. This area is Serpentine rock area that is being studied as well as the plant life. Stay on the trails to protect the area.

We took a scenic drive along Highway 49, from Jamestown to Oakhurst. Here are some of the stops we made, in Chinese Camp and Coulterville, as we explored historic and (mostly) abandoned towns. This is a great route for photographers and history buffs!

I dropped by this spot by before my lil sisters wedding in Sonora, CA on the weekend of New years eve 2015.
Right off the 120/montezuma road, there are about 1/2 dozen other sites/ Ghost Towns such as Montezuma, Jefferson (although only markers remain) and the only known cira 1800's Jesuit Shrine in No California in a 4 mile radius.

Parking right off the freeway a good 1/2 can be had walking around the old Main Street. The Pioneer Cemetery is right across the freeway where Main Street dead ends. Another 30mins to 1hr can be spent wandering the tombstones there.

Funny fact, there is till a functioning post office as Chinese Camp still has a tad over 100 ppl as a permanent population. One can buy a souvenir postcard and sen it with the Postmarked stamp.

If you love old building and ruins this is a great place to stop. It is easy to drive by without noticing. There is an historical marker on the west side of the street. Park there and walk down the block to the left (south). That one block is full of old buildings, most in a state of serious decay. Very interesting.

A very small historic town, with some great gold rush history. Stop and talk to the locals or do some research on the net before going to Yosemite?
