We welcome you to join us on our monthly collaboration with Folk Trails Hiking Club. Each month founder Jesse Hikes will organize and lead a local history hike. See below for the 2019 schedule.
Folks Trails Hiking Club and Outside Inn/Inn Town Campground invites history and nature lovers of all-ages to join them on an urban hike through historic Nevada City and its outlying neighborhoods. Led by Jesse Locks, a California Naturalist and founder of Folk Trails Hiking Club, these hikes are perfect for both residents and visitors looking for a deeper understanding and connection to this beautiful and unique corner of the world.
May-September the hikes begins at the Inn Town Campground, 9 Kidder Court, Nevada City and October-April they start at the Outside Inn, 575 Broad Street, Nevada City. Non-guests should park on New Mohawk Road and walk across the street to the campground, or if the hike starts at the Outside Inn, somewhere in downtown Nevada City.
Each hike varies from 2-4 miles, Please bring water, snacks if needed, proper footwear, dress in layers and of course, your camera. We’ll be walking during “magic hour” meaning perfect photos! The hike is free and open to anyone who’s interested in joining.
