Deer Creek Tribute Trail
With the warmer days, Nevada County Celebration of Trails is a great way to motivate to get outside and enjoy local trails.  Bear Yuba Land Trust kicks off the celebration at Robinson Plaza on Friday evening from 4-8pm.  The 7th annual event welcomes outdoor enthusiasts of all ages and abilities to get outside and explore the local trails.  Register for one of the 11 different adventures and learn more about their history of protecting the Bear and Yuba River watersheds and empowering healthy, resilient communities through nature access and education.

BYLT has partnered with other trail advocates to lead a variety of adventures in Nevada and Yuba Counties.  FREED will be leading a walk-n-roll on the Sierra Discovery Trail on Bowman Lake Road, Gold Country Trails Council will host two horse rides and one family hike on Rock Creek Nature Trail.  Hiking For Good is leading a hike with historian Hank Meals near the Little Town of Washington and Sierra Trailblazers Running Club will lead a trail run on Deer Creek Tribute Trail. BYLT staff and Trail Adopters will lead all types of Adventures on a number of trails including the newly repaved Litton Trail and a horse ride at Blue Point in Smartsville. All registrants will receive a limited edition Celebration of Trails t-shirt.

We’re also excited to announce the Folk Trails Hiking Club will relaunch our local history hikes later this summer. The hikes will start from the Outside Inn and kick off in mid August, click here for more info.  Check out our outdoor adventure page for more activities if you’re looking for more inspiration, or the BYLT Trails Portal.  We love sending folks outside, for directions to two of our favorite hikes from the motel, check out the Deer Creek Tribute Trail and Hirschman Pond. Post a comment if you’ve got a favorite local hike or adventure you want to share.
