Finding gold is so much fun... and having a great day with family and friends, enjoying the water and the sunshine, is life at its best. Listen carefully, and you may hear an echo from the streams...
... Gold ! Gold ! Gold !


Gold mining trips, on Woods Creek (the richest creek in California) are guided by experienced gold miners and these guided tours are fun, educational, and exciting.

If you are interested in scheduling a trip contact Tony Arredondo at 209-588-3430 or Nancy Roberts at 559-681-5144


Each trip is five hours long, (from 9:15 to 2:15 with clean-up afterwards) and includes digging, sluicing and panning for gold. Enjoy gold mining, have a picnic lunch, visit the waterfall, and collect beautiful rocks. Many people return again and again to enjoy this beautiful creek.

 Call your friends, grab the kids and bring the camera. The gold that you find, is yours to keep up to a one half ounce limit. (look at the current price of a half ounce) ... look forward to a great day and Gold Gold Gold !
