Its a fun cheap outing. We always grab a lawn seat in the grass, Its only 7$ a ticket and a great view. Make sure to bring a blanket to sit on and sunglasses. They have lots of places to choose from for dinner so come hungry.

Indian Creek Falls (yankee jim Road)

Wonderful place to hike, I Went up here with my husband and brother in-law. Their are allot of waterfalls and trails and the trail is right along the Northfork American River. Indian Creek Falls is a small double fall cascading down  30 ft., and is best seen in the spring. Getting to Indian Creek Falls in the spring, however, is very tricky. At the trailhead, you have to cross over fast rushing Shirttail Creek. You may or may not be able to find a safe place to wade across. If you wait until the summer months, then you’ll be able to rock hop across, but by this time of year, Indian Creek will be at low flow. Try coming in late June or very early July. You will love this place only suggestion is to make sure and drive a 4 wheel car or it may get a little tricky.

trailhead: From I-80 (heading east) at Colfax, take the Colfax / Grass Valley exit. Take the first right onto Canyon Way, and drive 2.2 miles to Yankee Jim’s Rd. Turn left and drive 4.7 miles to the bridge over the river. Park at the side of the road. The road turns to dirt but is okay for cars. (Lat:39.02493 Lon:-120.90132)
