Recently, 11 volunteers joined BYLT's trails team to enhance hiking opportunities within the Deer Creek Tribute Trail system. The crew moved boulders and leveled out the grade on 800 feet of a user-created spur trail that once took miners to the Gold Rush-era Providence Mine.

"Trail lovers united in a common cause to improve a user-created trail in the Deer Creek Tribute Trail system," said Land Access Manager Shaun Clarke.

Thanks to our wonderful volunteers, BYLT has built and maintains 35 miles of trails within the Bear and Yuba watersheds. www.bylt.org

In the wild, California Bay Umbellularia californica can be found on hillsides, near streams in the upper foothill and mixed conifer belts and moist canyons below 5,000 feet throughout Nevada County, including BYLT's Rice's Crossing Preserve.

Traditionally, Bay nuts were cooked in ashes and enjoyed as a food. When hiking, just rub a bay leaf directly on the skin to discourage mosquito bites!

Collect now and enjoy the leaves as a seasoning in winter soups or make your own ice cream or stop by Treats in Nevada City. Thanks to Living Wild for the recipe!

Armchair Trek: Around Lake Tahoe in 15 Days - What I Learned Hiking the Tahoe Rim Trail
Feb 9th, 7- 8:30pm
Gene Albaugh Community Room – Madelyn Helling Library

In the summer of 2015, Jesse Locks hiked with twelve strangers 165 miles around the sixth largest lake in the U.S., Lake Tahoe. An avid writer and hiker, Locks started a hiking club – Folk Trails Hiking Club – to help her train for her first thru-hike, but nothing could have prepared her for what she would learn while crossing some of the most beautiful terrain in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
