Event description

Description

It's a special hike for families with small children. Lacey Meadows and Webber Lake have been closed to the public for decades. Come discover the long hidden beauty and charm of the area, walk through Lacey Meadows and find a plethora of Sierra birds and wildflowers. We will cover part of the Lacey Valley Trail in an easy and memorable hike. The meadows offer spectacular wildflowers in spring and summer and are host to over one hundred species of birds, including rare and endangered species. The trail begins at trailhead at the west end of the lake. There is not a bridge across Lacey Creek and for most of the summer your feet will get wet and the creek is a great place to play. A picnic table along the route would be an excellent place for a picnic.

Hiking details:

This hike is an easy 2-mile round-trip hike with a 200’ elevation gain through meadows. The pace of the hike will be slower and with frequent stops to play. Please be out of your vehicle and ready to hike at the time set for the hike to begin.

FAQs

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

Follow Hwy 89, about 17 miles north of Truckee. Turn left on Jackson Meadows Road and continue west for about 8 miles to the sign for Webber Lake. Turn left and proceed down a dirt road for about a quarter mile. At a closed gate, the road forks to the right and in about another quarter of a mile is a dirt road to the left and a sign pointing to the TDLT Lacey Meadows parking area. Follow this road for about 0.6 mile to the parking area, interpretive kiosks, and maps of the area.
