Founded in 1848, Auburn’s history captivates guests once they arrive. With the gold rush, Auburn exploded into a robust mining and supply camp. Settlers to the region—not all of them law-abiding citizens—used horses and mules to traverse the Nevada, Sacramento, Auburn-Folsom and Foresthill trails. These trails would later become the commercial and residential streets that you will use during your adventure in Auburn.
Present day Auburn is filled with the optimism and spirit of its colorful history. And it’s that same energy and drive that propels the town to continue to offer an unsurpassed experience rich in adventure and history for all ages.
