More Info Directions




From Grass Valley, take Hwy 216 for 2.8 miles to a right angle turn in the road. Go straight on Finnegan Road which will become the Kent-Grass Valley Road. It is alternately called Finnegan Road and the Kent-Grass Valley Road. This road has some undeveloped regions with wild vegetation but the highlight is the Finnegan Canyon which can produce some water birds. Finnegan Road eventually returns to Hwy 97 at Kent. If you take it all the way to Kent, make sure you stop at Kopke and Wilson Roads (see below).
