Comments: Walk Daily, dawn to dusk.
The trail is mostly paved with some dirt and gravel and there are a few short hills, and some sidewalk stairs in town. The walk takes you through old gold rush-era town with many antique stores, restaurants, old and new homes, cemetery and historical sites. If you are an antique collector, or enjoy viewing "old time" architecture, this is the walk for you; good food available, too. This walk is particularly interesting during Christmas season.
