The El Dorado National Forest Interpretive Association is offering several guided hikes/walks at Carson Pass over the next week.

June 29 – The El Dorado National Forest Interpretive Association will be offering an Interpretive Hike, “Walk Among the Trees” at 10 a.m. Enjoy the lyrical words of John Muir while learning about the trees in the Mokelumne Wilderness area while taking a stroll through a magnificent Sierra Forest, starting at the Carson Pass Information Station on California Hwy 88. Each participant will leave with a better understanding of how to identify trees and much more! This is a 2.5-hour, 2-mile hike on an easy trail. Space is limited…call 209-258-8606 to reserve a spot.

July 1 – The El Dorado National Forest Interpretive Association will be offering an Interpretive Hike, “The Geology of Carson Pass” at 10:30 a.m., and will start at the Carson Pass Information Station on California Hwy 88. Learn about the amazing geological formations around the area. These hikes are designed for people who can hike a couple of miles and appreciate the rocks as much as the flowers. This is a 1.5-mile meander on a moderate to easy trail. Space is limited…call 209-258-8606 to reserve a spot.

July 2– the El Dorado National Forest Interpretive Association will be offering TWO Interpretive Hikes. Both hikes are at 10 a.m. and will start at the Carson Pass Information Station on California Hwy 88. Space is limited…call 209-258-8606 to reserve a spot for either hike.

Hike 1- Devil’s Ladder History Hike: This is a walk down to where the old highway crosses the Emigrant Trail at Devil’s Ladder. From there we will follow the wagon track to register rocks where the immigrants from the east wrote their names with grease from their wagon wheels. We will also pass the marker of an Unknown Pioneer. This is about 1.5 miles.

Hike 2- Wild Flower Walk: Take a walk through the lupine and many other wildflowers at Carson Pass, to Frog Lake (and perhaps beyond, for the more adventurous) experiencing wildflowers through the eyes of a passionate flower expert. This is an easy trail and a relaxed walk. This event will be about 2.5 hours.
