The Golden Highway—Amador County

Leaving sprawling Calaveras County, California, and heading north, the next county along the Golden Highway (Hwy 49) is tiny Amador County. Packed into it’s roughly twenty-five mile stretch of the historical roadway are some of the most charming, scenic towns that will be encountered along the whole way. This stretch was also home to some of the richest gold placers during the gold rush, a fact not lost on those who still try their hand at panning and dredging today.
