Kayak or canoe the Tuolumne River or Raft the Stanislaus…especially in the beginning of November to watch the salmon spawn! Run, walk, or hike the Dry Creek Trail – over six miles of paved trails on the creek just outside of downtown – or the Virginia Trail a converted railway line. Trail Ride the Tuolumne River Trail, home to the NorCal Cycling races along the Tuolumne River just outside of downtown. Take a metric century on your road bike riding between almond orchards, over covered bridges, along rivers and in rolling hills. Bring your fly gear and hit the lower Sierras for some brook trout or haul your OHV and hit the trails outside of town.
