Prospectors Road – Georgetown, CA

This dangerous seven-mile mountain road runs between Georgetown and Lotus, parallel to Marshall Road. 

In the last 150+ years, Prospectors Road has claimed many lives due to its treacherous location.  The ghost of a grumpy old prospector doesnt help the situation any.  Reports say that if you see the weeds along the side of the road begin to part, watch out.  Once the weeds part, the old prospector floats up the embankment and confronts drivers as they pass.    He points his bony finger and silently mouths the words “Get off my claim”.  I wouldn’t argue with him.
