Trek at Clear Creek Preserve for Hikers and Equestrians

Come join us on Sunday, October 14th on Grouse Ridge for special backcountry trek!

Clear Creek Preserve is a 107-acre Forestry Conservation Easement and protects forest productivity, plant and wildlife habitat and water resources from development. Helen Crawford and Brent McDermott, the owners of Clear Creek Preserve love their old growth trees so much they name them, and their passion for the forest lead them to BYLT. Now, their forest stewardship ethics can be perpetuated by their land, forever. This is a rare opportunity for the public to visit the property.

Interested equestrians will meet at 9 a.m., to be ready to ride at 10 a.m. sharp. Riders will travel 2-3 hours across moderate terrain on backcountry trails. Hikers will meet up with equestrians at noon for lunch and a moderate forest walk and discussion. Lunch and cold drinks will be provided for equestrians; hikers please bring a sack lunch! After lunch, a discussion will follow for both parties detailing how the land is managed for ecological health and wildlife abundance. A music jam will follow the discussion; those who want to bring their own musical instrument can make arrangements to have it ready at the lunch spot.

Details about where to meet for the event will be provided a week prior to the event, after registration. If you have any questions, please contact Felicia Van Hecke at or (530) 272-5994 x 207
