Hike Elizabethtown Meadow with Truckee Donner Land Trust
Across Hwy 267 from Northstar CA resort
Posted By: Truckee Donner Land Trust
Join the Truckee Donner Land Trust for a stroll through Elizabethtown Meadows. The Middle Fork of Martis Creek, a year round stream, runs for nearly a mile through the property. The property consists of Jeffrey Pine forest uplands and three large mountain meadows. We will wander through the meadow to enjoy wildflowers, wildlife and amazing view of the Pacific Crest.
An easy 5 mile hike with minimal elevation changes through meadows and forests. Note that there is a quarter mile walk down a hill from the parking area to the trailhead and then back up the hill back to the parking area at the end.
Take Highway 267 to Northstar California resort. Park in the Northstar’s Castle Peak parking area Red Lot #2. Meet your group at the trailhead at the back of the lot.
