THIS HIKE IS FULL. PLEASE CHECK OUR CALENDAR AND JOIN US FOR ANOTHER ADVENTURE.
If you’ve wanted to explore the foothills in the fall, come join us for our LAST public guided hike of the year! This docent led hike will be at our Harvego Bear River Preserve in North Auburn on Saturday, December 9. The hike starts at 9am in North Auburn.
This preserve currently has three different trails that our docents can lead people on. This month, you will take the main trail loop, see the views from Bald Rock, and get a glimpse of the Bear River from the overlook. You will learn about the history of the cattle ranch in this rolling oak woodland savannah setting while hiking through this beautiful preserve.
There is no charge, however we suggest a minimum donation of $10 per person which helps us continue our work and allows us to continue offering these hikes and events. We accept cash or check at the event, or you can donate online at https://www.placerlandtrust.org/donate/ . If you’re not yet a Placer Land Trust member, please consider joining to get invitations to exclusive member only hikes and events. https://www.placerlandtrust.org/member-sign-up/
