The Truckee-Donner Land Trust has been protecting and preserving scenic and historic land in the greater Truckee area for more than 25 years. Past and current projects are targeted based on their high natural resource value with the goal of encouraging sustainable public use on these properties. Their success stories are too many to name, but anyone who recreates in the Truckee/Donner area on trails is likely enjoying the great outdoors on a parcel of land that the Land Trust helped to protect or bring into public use.
The Land Trust is very proactive in encouraging community involvement whether it be through donations, trail work or other outdoor events. Recently the 2018 Summer Hiking Series was announced which will include over 40 hikes at 11 different properties this summer. Some highlights include The Royal Gorge Rim Trail, Perazzo Meadows, Mt. Lola and Castle Valley just to name a few. There are hikes suitable for people of all ages and a variety of options for different distances and difficulty. Hikes are guided by a docent and there are detailed descriptions on the TDLT website for all of the hiking options.
Registration is open now for the upcoming summer season. This is an amazing opportunity to see some of the most beautiful and unspoiled land in the region. Get out there and enjoy.
