If you live in (or are planning a visit to) Northern California, and you’d like to explore some accessible trails, then join the folks at the Nevada County Land Trust for one of their “Treks for People with Limited Mobility”. Developed in partnership with the FREED Center for Independent Living in Grass Valley, this new program offers naturalist-led hikes to some of the accessible trails in the area.
The hikes are conducted on the second and fourth Sundays of the month, rain or shine. All trails are rated as accessible, and are suitable for power and manual wheelchair-users. Additionally, some hikes include a stop for a picnic lunch (bring your own) in an accessible picnic area. And the best news is, they’re priced at a very reasonable $3 for NCLT members and $5 for non-members. And in the spirit of inclusion, everyone is welcome.
The June schedule includes a hike on Rock Creek Trail, which is located 14 miles from Grass Valley: and a trek around Frazier Falls in the Gold Lakes Basin. More hikes will be added to the schedule later this summer.
For more information about the treks, give Stephanie at call at (530) 272-5994.
And get ready to hit the trail this summer!
