Event description

Description

Join the Truckee Donner Land Trust for a stroll through Elizabethtown Meadows. The Middle Fork of Martis Creek, a year round stream, runs for nearly a mile through the property. The property consists of Jeffrey Pine forest uplands and three large mountain meadows. We will wander through the meadow to enjoy wildflowers, wildlife and amazing view of the Pacific Crest.

Hiking Details:

An easy 4 mile hike with minimal elevation changes through meadows and forests. Note that there is a quarter mile walk down a hill from the parking area to the trailhead and then back up the hill back to the parking area at the end.

FAQs

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

From Truckee:

Take Highway 267 to Northstar California resort. Park in the Northstar's Castle Peak parking area Red Lot #1. At the back of the lot find the trailhead that will take you down the hill to the Northstar realtor parking lot. The trail continues around the realtor office to the traffic light on Highway 267. Cross Highway 267 at the traffic light, follow the trail down a short drop off and meet your group at the bridge

What should I bring to the event?

Are there restrooms available?

No. Please come prepared to use the woods off the trail as necessary.
