Father’s Day Guided Hike in Lower Carpenter Valley

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. Unlike other Land Trust properties, access to Lower Carpenter Valley is only available on 5 mile moderate docent-led hikes this summer while we work to install trails and parking to better protect this hotspot for biodiversity.

Hiking details: Enjoy a docent-led, 5+mile hike on mostly flat terrain on somewhat rough ranch roads at about 6200 feet in elevation. You should be able to hike about 2.5 hours at a moderate pace with some stops.
