Explore Rocklin

Gold miners once traveled through the area of Rocklin and as the Gold Rush slowed down, businessmen began to notice the large granite boulders laying around. A quarry was built to break down granite blocks. The Central Pacific Railroad was built through Rocklin in 1864 and in 1893 it became a city. Today, Rocklin is a vibrant city home to corporate headquarters, great parks and schools, hiking and biking trails, restaurants and more. The population is 64,417 and it has been considered one of the fastest growing cities in California (60 percent growth since 2000). Situated right off I-80 and Highway 65, residents have easy access to Sacramento and other cities in the area.
