This week’s Hike of the Week doesn’t involve a long walk; it’s an urban hike. Vishal Mishra did it this past weekend, when he and his lady put their Keds to the pavement in Quincy.
Take CA-89 to Quincy, county seat of Plumas County. Park behind the Plumas County Courthouse on Jackson St. and begin your walk by circling the courthouse (Court St., Main St, Bradley St.), enjoying the trees as you go.
When you get back to Jackson, turn west (right). There’s an inn and homes along Jackson with great color. Turn left at Lee. At the intersection of Lee and High is Judge Theilor’s sugar maple. Continue uphill to Monte Vista, then walk east (left) to Coburn. Continue down to Jackson, then right to Fillmore.
Community United Methodist Church is at the intersection of Jackson and Filmore. From the middle of Fillmore or along the north side of Jackson, nice photographs of the church can be taken with fall color surrounding it.
Continuing north on Fillmore, you reach Main St. Quincy’s downtown has one of the prettiest Main Streets in California with charming stores, restaurants, pubs and lots of fall color.
That completes the walk, though if you’d like additional places to explore in the area, drive east on CA-89 to La Porte Rd to photograph a landmark sugar maple at a bend near the Thompson Ranch. Or, drive west from Quincy on 89, then north on CA-70 to the Old Highway Rd. which leads to a trail to lush fall color along Spanish Creek.
