Ornamented in the northwest of Nevada City lies a historic town of French Corral, located just 5 miles off the State Route 49 via the Pleasant Valley Road. French Corral was one of the very first historic California Gold Rush mining campsites. Elevated at a height of 1532 feet, the town’s pastoral outline itself speaks for its lavish past and its warm winters complemented by mild summers make it an excellent holiday spot. It is a kind of semi-ghost town abundant with a few original authentic structures which you would come across while exploring the town. A village of mere dozen of inhabitants, French Corral retains its traditional flavor of romance at its historic landmarks!
