Event description

Description

Truckee Donner Land Trust invites you on a guided hike in the magnificent Lower Carpenter Valley. Minutes from Truckee but hidden from view, Carpenter Valley offers grand scenery, lush meadows carpeted by wildflowers, and the chance to see wildlife in its natural environs. The Land Trust is in the process of acquiring the property so it will not be open to the public in 2017, with the exception of these exclusive hikes led by docents who are available to guide the route and answer questions about the land and its inhabitants.

Hiking details: Enjoy a docent-led, 5+mile hike on mostly flat terrain on somewhat rough ranch roads.
