ABOUT THE WEEKEND: We will help complete the latest higher elevation trail in Nevada County. We will help build a section of the forthcoming DLRT, which will be a great local riding option with gorgeous views and some fun technical granite sections. Adventuresome riders could connect this trail to Hole-in-the-Ground for an uber Sierra epic.
ABOUT THE TRAIL: The Donner Lake Rim Trail, a project of the Truckee Donner Land Trust, is almost entirely an all-volunteer effort to build a trail encircling the peaks around Donner Lake. Hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians can enjoy the stunning views of the Lake, Mount Rose and the Pacific Crest from the trail, which will be 23-miles when complete. The Land Trust has planned a special section of the trail that bypasses the PCT and will remain open to mountain bikes.
