The area known today as Pollock Pines was originally a thoroughfare for travelers during the great California gold rush. Pioneers and immigrants traveled back and forth on what is today the Pony Express Trail. Some of them stopped and settled, creating services for the travel weary.
The area has been a refuge for travelers since the 1850s. It is an example of businesses supporting businesses and promoting tourism in the community and the county.
After experiencing the Pollock Pines Visitor's Center, one would have several options available whether needing to find lodging for the night, or play for the day.
