The Yellowstone Kelly Heritage Trail will be rededicated to reflect a fitting tribute to the pioneers of our ridge community, including our trailblazers and the railroad that thrust us into the 20th century. Several memorials and a short tour of the trail project will be available, with tributes to each pioneer family on placards declaring their prominence in our community’s extensive history.

A generous thank you to the Gold Nugget Museum; the Town of Paradise; the Paradise Ridge Chamber of Commerce; Paradise Rotary International; Feather River Hospital, Adventist Health; and the numerous individual sponsors who have seen fit to recognize the accomplishments of those who came before us.

The event is free, with refreshments available for a nominal fee. Bring your lawn chair or a blanket to relax on the luscious grass and watch history in the making.
