2022 Webber Lake/Lacey Meadows Art Hike
July 16 & 17, 2022

We are partnering with Truckee Donner Land Trust and are excited to share a new landscape with you featuring Lower Lacey Meadow and Webber Lake.  There are some uneven footing in the forested area.
Plan to spend a 1/2 day on the mountain with amazing art and nature sites. The Lacey Valley Trail, about 3.3 miles roundtrip, offers an easy and memorable hike. There is not a bridge across Lacey Creek and for most of the summer, and your feet will get wet. The trail is mostly flat with some uphill sections over rocky terrain when we go off of the main dirt trail.

Please arrive 30 to 40 minutes early to find parking, check-in at the ticket table, use the restroom, and catch the shuttle to the trailhead. Base camp/check-in will be at the Day Use Parking Area at Webber Lake Campground. Directions below. There is 0% cell reception at Webber Lake, so get your directions to Webber Lake Campground loaded on your phone before heading out.

Art Hikes will take 2 1/2 to 3 hours to complete. ​​​​​​​There is a start time on your ticket. Example: hike start at 10:00 am - 1:00 ending the hike. Arrive 30 minutes before your hike tour start time.
• Printed Ticket from Ticketleap with time and date. Bring ID if you lost your ticket
• Bring drinking water for the hike/ snacks and picnic for before or after your hike / good vibes
• Bring your Epi-Pen if allergic
• Bring bug spray, we also suggest to wear long pants for mosquitoes if you are sensitive
• There is no photography of artists or art sites
• Wear walking shoes, or water hiking shoes, or bring flip flops in your backpack to cross Lacey Creek, or go barefoot across the shallow creek.
• Wear layers
• Don't forget your full water bottle! No drinking water source on site.
• PETS SHOULD STAY AT HOME- the art hikes are a family-friendly event, but sorry no pets.

Please forward this information to everyone in your party. We strive to have each hiker well informed for a great experience on the trail.
