Litton Trail

The Litton Trail meanders through a small forest alongside an irrigation canal and ties together Sierra College, Nevada Union High School and a retirement community with downtown Grass Valley shopping.

Loma Rica Trail

This nearly level connector trail runs alongside Brunswick Road then turns pastoral after crossing Idaho-Maryland Road. Look forward to a lovely and easy ascent through meadows and woods to Loma Rica Road.

Memorial Park Trail

An easy 0.8 mile ramble between a popular city park and the historic heart of Empire Mine State Park.

Rambler Trail

This 0.8 mile out-and-back trail is located on BYLT’s 35-acre Clover Valley Preserve near Alta Sierra. Look for the trail’s namesake, a rusting sky blue 1964 Rambler, before reaching the trail’s end by South Wolf Creek.

Rattlesnake Trail

Located off Rattlesnake Road in Grass Valley, this lovely, quiet forested walk with an irrigation canal and mining history was a joint project of the Rattlesnake Neighborhood Association and Bear Yuba Land Trust.

Sugarloaf Mountain Trail

The iconic landmark just north of town is now an open space preserve easily accessible from town. An excellent trail to the top, following the grade of an old road, is open for community enjoyment.

Union Hill Trail Area

The Union Hill Trail Area is part of the 800-acre Empire Mine State Historic Park, offering a number of less populated opportunities for hiking, jogging, bicycling and horseback riding.
