Sierra RR Angels Camp Branch

New Melones Resevoir

1.-5. At Jackass Hill Rd just south of the New Melones Resevoir, the roadbed crosses the highway twice in quick succesion on its way north.

At the lake, the line used two switchbacks to descend into the canyon for its crossing of the Stanislaus River and two more to ascend the other side.
A recent trip to the lake during low water revealed much of the old right-of-way.
The map has been marked with numbers to match each photo. Tour starts at bottom left and continues clockwise. Enjoy.
