At mile 31.3 on the Plumas National Forest Backcountry Discovery Trail lies the historic Swiss Mine and its accompanying miner's cabin. The Swiss Mine was owned by the Piazzoni family, Swiss immigrants who took up mining on Owl Creek. The family married into a local Maidu Indian family and maintained the mine and cabin for more than 100 years.
