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 is now fully open to the public with trails and infrastructure 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 at about 6200 feet in elevation. You should be able to hike about 2.5 hours at a moderate pace with some stops.
