UPDATE 1/8/16: Due to the current Epic storm we are experiencing in California and the Flood levels of the Lower Yuba river peaking at 80,000 cfs, we will be moving the River to Reel to the safety of land! We will head out on a hike just outside of Nevada City with the possibility of a short paddle on Englebright Reservoir later in the day (if it is not spilling). See below for new details!
Wear hiking clothes and shoes (close toed hiking boots, or tennis shoes-they may get muddy!) and bring a lunch. Meet at 10:30 am at Edwards Crossing. We will meet at the parking lot on the South Side of the Bridge. Hike goes rain or shine, please dress warmly, bring appropriate layers and rain gear for any weather (expect weather from the very low 40's to high 40's).
We will have a few Alpacka Rafts to hike with for the day and sample their functionality. Minors must be accompanied by a Guardian.
All participants will be required to sign a liability release.
There is the possibility of going for a short paddle on Englebright Reservoir (if it is not spilling) after the hike for those interested in getting on the water or trying out an Alpacka raft.
This is the perfect chance to get outside and learn about the Yuba Watershed with SYRCL's River Science team before enjoying a weekend of inspiring films at the Wild and Scenic Film Festival.
Directions to Edwards Crossing: From Highway 20 at Nevada City travel north on Highway 49 and turn right onto North Bloomfield Road; turn right at the T-intersection of North Bloomfield and Lake Vera Purdon Road; drive 7 miles to the trailhead at Edwards Crossing Bridge. All parking is on the south side of the bridge near the restrooms.
