2022 Art Hikes

For our 2021 attendees/ticket holders: You will receive a credit for your ticket(s) to use towards a future Art Hike.  A discount code (100%) was emailed to the ticket holder in February with the dates and locations for the 2022 art in nature events.

We are partnering with Truckee Donner Land Trust and are excited to share a new landscape with you featuring a 3 mile hike to view Lacey Meadows and Webber Lake. Hike among the wildflowers on July 16 & 17, 2022 to discover five art and performance sites in the forest. Discover this 3+-mile out-and-back trail near Sierraville, California. Generally considered a moderately challenging route. The art hike should be an average of 2 h 30 min to complete. This trail is great for hiking, along a dirt trail, crossing a seasonal creek, you may get your feet wet. Not much elevation gain, open meadows with some time in a forested area to view the art sites. Some uneven footing in the forested area when we walk away from the dirt trail.

Our Signature autumn weekend September 10 & 11, 2022 Art Hikes will be held at Tahoe Meadows Trail, a shorter 1.3 mile hike above Lake Tahoe near Mt. Rose in the HUMBOLDT-TOIYABE NATIONAL FOREST featuring eight art performance sites along a gentle trail. A complimentary short shuttle ride will take you to and from the trailhead.

We stand together in resilience and perseverance through these trying times with the confidence that the artistic spirit cannot be quelled.
