Step 1 of 2

Go to Downieville ca in sierra county. Go over bridge and make a right onto Main Street follow to the fork. Take the upper road Sailors Ravine not the lower that leads down. Follow for about 4.8 miles you will see the claim sign D and J1. The road fits one car only with several small water crossing. You will drive upwards and will look down at the river and then down to it. There is a very large pile of tailings and you will be there.

It would be nice to have the CAMC file # as well as the GPS coordinates for the 4 corners. This would give us the ability to explore without getting off the claim.

New to the whole gpaa! And not understanding it all missed the 4x4 only part of directions on the getting there! SO BEFORE you asked we went in our Ram 3500 4x4 dually with our cab over camper! Did I mention this is a 4x4 road???
We made it in had three beautiful days found a few specks of gold but we had a blast anyway. The short of it 4x4 MEANS 4X4 ROAD. I'm sure there is great gold there but we felt blessed to make it in and out without tumbling down the cliff side! Go and be safe!

Cross the bridge and turn right on to Main St. . There are several forks. If you pass the lower side of the cemetery, your on the right road. At the first fork, the upper road says "No Outlet", go down hill to the next fork. At the junction of the next fork you will see a sign saying Main St with a right arrow and Gold Bluff Rd with a left arrow going up. Go Left, the road is Sailor Ravine but the sign is for a claim about a mile in. If you pass a newly constructed culvert within a mile or so, your set. Just follow it till you pass a small cliff face and start digging.
The road is in good shape, 4 X 4,s are not necessary but some clearance is needed. Do not take VERY large trucks, no Duellies, but a full size truck will make it past the cliff face. I found about a 1/2 gr in 4hrs digging.

Access was not bad if you have a 4 wheel drive but I don’t recommend anything but a 4X4 due to clearance needed over some areas of the rocky dirt road. As mentioned in previous postings, Sailor Ravine road was not out but you will have to cross about 4 areas where the road crosses small tributaries. That was in July 2019, maybe they will dissipate by fall, but I would not be surprised if some of them continue to the next rains since last year was so wet. End of the site was marked but not the beginning, at least what I saw. Beginning was clear enough by the rock face as mentioned in the mining guide and the campsite was clean.
