Course Map and Directions to Parking Lot (click on the thumbnails)


To park in the Beals Point State Park, there is a $12 park entrance fee per vehicle charge. Negro Bar State Park is $10. You may purchase an annual California State Parks Poppy Pass for $125 from the pay station attendant or from the District Office.

Annual Poppy Pass information

Many trails are located within the California State Parks. If you do not have one, I highly recommend purchasing a Poppy Pass for $125/year (from date of purchase). California State Parks Pass info This pass is valid at 97 parks in the State of California where an entry fee is collected.  You can usually purchase your park pass at most park pay stations, most any state park office, including the Gold Fields District Office, 7806 Folsom-Auburn Rd, Folsom and the Auburn Recreation Area office on Hwy 49 about 1/2 mile into the canyon from Auburn.
