Fireside Chats – Historic Trails, Hikes, and Paths

Inn Town Campground, 9 Kidder Court, Nevada City
Free, Pre-Registration required, sign up here
Three years ago Jesse Locks of Folk Trails Hiking Club and Erin Thiem of Inn Town Campground teamed up to offer locals and visitors a series of free monthly history hikes in historical downtown Nevada City and its outlying neighborhoods. From architecture and cemeteries to Deer Creek and the Tribute Trail, they have led hundreds of hikers along historic routes and shared the stories and tales of this place. For this final Fireside Chat of the season, Jesse and Erin will share their favorite stories from these hikes and offer tips on how you can make your daily walk into an adventure that reveals the secrets of the past.
Set against a beautiful backdrop of towering ponderosa pines at the Inn Town Campground, the Fireside Chat summer series explores current conservation issues – trail access, land use, and wildlife biodiversity – in a unique outdoor round table storytelling and conversational format, with the goal to entertain, increase a deeper knowledge of the Sierra Nevada foothills and mountains, and foster collaboration.
Fireside Chats are free and open to the public, but space is limited and pre-registration is required. Attendees will need to park off site on New Mohawk Road and walk across the street to the campground.
