What we'll do
Truckee Donner Land Trust invites you on a guided hike in the magnificent Lower Carpenter Valley. Minutes from Truckee but hidden from view, Carpenter Valley offers grand scenery, lush meadows carpeted by wildflowers, and the chance to see wildlife in its natural environs. The Land Trust acquired the property in 2017 and it will be fully open to the public until 2020 when the trails and infrastructure are in place. You can view this exquisite valley with these exclusive hikes led by docents who are available to guide the route and answer questions about the land and its inhabitants.
Hiking details: Enjoy a docent-led, 5+mile hike on mostly flat terrain on somewhat rough ranch roads.
What should I bring?
Please wear closed toe shoes and bring bug spray, sunscreen, water, and snacks you’ll need for our outing. Depending on the weather, you may need sun protection (hat/glasses) or rain gear or cold weather gear.
Can I bring my dog?
No. Due to the sensitive nature of this unique and pristine environment, dogs are not allowed in the Carpenter Valley. Pets will not be allowed on any of the group hikes. We kindly ask that you please leave your pets at home. Your canine companion is welcome at every Land Trust property that is currently open to the public. Please visit tdlandtrust.org for recommendations.
