Jackson California River Running Guide

Weather for Jackson California Forecast

Jackson, CA is in the heart of the Gold Country, where Forty-Niners flocked to find their fortunes 150 years ago. Modern travelers come to enjoy historic buildings, lovely tree-covered hills, rich wine country, antique shops and a wide array of outdoor recreational opportunities for every season.

 

Jackson is blessed with spectacular scenery that changes with the season.  Visitors can enjoy everything from quaint country valleys to breathtaking mountain vistas as they make their way along the county's two primary roadways: historic Highway 49, which stretches generally north to south from El Dorado to Calaveras counties; and east-to-west Highway 88, which has been called 'the most scenic highway in America' and is popular with travelers on their way to Lake Tahoe.

 

Jackson is among the last in the state offering a genuine, non-commercialized glimpse of the past. The historic building and covered sidewalks are, for the most part, just as they were a century ago, not Hollywood-type reproductions. Everything about Jackson is authentic, and residents take great pains to keep it that way.

Jackson has it all: from the lush Shenandoah Valley wine country in the northwest region of the county, home to a host of award-winning wineries, to the central oak studded hillsides and the majestic Sierra Nevada mountains at the eastern tip of the county, where visitors find some of the finest skiing in California.
