Hundreds of square miles of national forests and other public lands make Placer County a DogTrekker hotspot. Highway 49 runs south from Auburn, the county seat, to access 35,000-acre Auburn State Recreation Area hugging two forks of the American River. Hidden Falls Regional Park is delightful in fall even if the falls aren’t running, while at Cronan Ranch Regional Trails Park, you can hike to the river and watch the whitewater rafters go by. more »

The contemporary wine industry in Placer County, while young, is gaining steam and recognition, turning out wines that impressed the judges at the 2014 California State Fair and rolling out the welcome mat for visitors with two legs and four. Most of the 20 wineries and tasting rooms on the Placer County Wine Trail are situated north of Interstate 80 near Auburn and Loomis. Almost all welcome tail-waggers, so pick a region to explore and let serendipity be your guide.   more »
