Recreation in the
Mother Lode is Year Round

At Moccasin Ranch Estates you’ll never run out of things to do. If taking in the views, sunset or wildlife from your parcel are not enough, don’t worry, there is something for everyone.

Hike your own 37-acre parcel and if that still isn’t enough, explore some of the 1,500 acres of developed open trails.

Rock climb or scramble. If this is to your liking, you might explore parcels #10 and #26. Once your skills are fine tuned, world class climbing in Yosemite is only 47 miles to the east.

Horseback riding doesn’t get any better than this! With over 1,500 acres of developed trails and the space to develop your own horse facility, what more could you ask for? If just watching horses work and play is enough for you, consider parcels #3, or #4.

Mountain biking is great on Moccasin Ranch Road but if that is not hair raising enough, some of the trails off Marshes Flat Road are sure to get you going. Your might want to look at parcels #32 and #41.

Water sports seem like a stones through away, especially from Parcel #1, which has a close view of Lake Don Pedro. Lake Don Pedro is a premier water skiing lake with complete facilities including marinas, protected swimming areas and convenience stores. If you love to fish, pick any one of a dozen lakes and streams within a ten-minute ride. Trout, bass, blue gill, and catfish abound. At Moccasin Ranch Estates, you could even create and stock your own spring fed trout pond on parcel #32 or #29.

Four Golf Courses in the area will keep your game up to par; two of them were even designed by Robert Trent Jones!

Snow skiing and Boarding is less than an hour away at Dodge Ridge. Badger Pass and Bear Valley is a little further away but offers some great runs.

History buffs rejoice! Moccasin Ranch Estates is located in the heart of the Gold Country near Sonora and Columbia Historic Park, an area rich in early California History. In Jamestown, you can take a ride on an old steam locomotive and learn how they influenced early California. Perhaps parcel #32 would interest you. The remnants of an early settler’s root cellar are still visible.

Pan for Gold on your own parcel of land, you will not be the first to find it here! Any one of the stream front parcels could pan out. Parcels #2, #4 and #26 are perfect choices for the prospector in you.

Indian Culture could be as close as your own back yard if you choose parcel #29 which contains grinding stones used by these first inhabitants of Moccasin Ranch Estates. The Indians too recognized the special beauty and abundance of this place and its surroundings.

Photograph, paint, draw... landscape, wildlife, rock formations, streams, flowers, vistas…the subjects and settings are endless.

Wine tasting at Ironstone Vineyards might have you thinking about planting your low elevation parcel in some short season vines.

Explore close by Mercer Caverns where you’ll learn all about Stalagmites and Stalactites. This natural cave is just outside the town of Murphy where you can still tie your horse up at the local hotel and get a hot breakfast or cup of coffee.
