Downieville
Highway 49 on the North Fork Yuba River, California

Downieville is a classic example of the boom towns of the 1850's. It's unique claim to fame is as the site of the only lynching of a woman in California - there is even a bronze plaque commemorating the event.

Today it is a charming small town, packed into the narrow canyon of the North Yuba Rver. Trout fishing in the river and a few tributary streams has been its mainstay for many years, but now mountain biking on many miles National Forest roads has become at least as important.
