South Yuba Trail

CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE on Saturday, June 4th. BYLT will be partnering with other trail advocates to lead a variety of adventures in Nevada County. FREED will be leading an accessible walk-n-roll at Hirschman Trail, and California Native Plant Society will lead a wheelchair accessible wildflower walk on the Sierra Discovery Trail on Bowman Lake Road. Hiking For Good is leading a wild and scenic hike with historian Hank Meals on the South Yuba Trail to Long Point. Sierra Trailblazers Running Club is leading a 5k trail run on Cascade Canal Trail, and we’re partnering with BONC on a mountain bike ride on Pioneer Trail. BYLT Trail Adopters will lead a hike for people of all ages and abilities on Litton Trail. We’re also partnering with Sierra Gold Parks Foundation for three guided hikes at local State Parks Empire Mine, Bridgeport, and Malakoff Diggins, and we’ll cap off the day with a stargazing event with the Nevada County Astronomers.
