Maidu Grinding Rock Ride - C31 (BK)

Join us on a trip to the past from Maidu Park.

We will be stopping at the Grinding Rock site in Springview Park in Rocklin. This is the location of many mortar holes in bedrock, used by the Nisenan culture for 1500 years, up to the late 1800's, to grind acorns, etc.

Our food stop will be at Peet's or Whole Foods in the Fountains.

We will have to take a short detour along Atlantic Ave to avoid a closed section of the Miners Ravine trail.
