Have you been for a walk/run/bike ride along the Deer Creek Tribute Trail? The 9 mile trail starts in downtown Nevada City and explores the area above, beside and through Deer Creek.

Ten $2,500 commissions will be created for the trail to help bridge the environment, the community and the history through outdoor art installations. “The ART OnSite project is a great opportunity to celebrate the cultural richness of Nevada County and to educate visitors through its collaboration of art, nature, history and people,” says Nancy Nelson, of Nevada County Arts.

The Outside Inn has detailed maps of all of these hikes, so if you need some directions or information stop by and visit us.

If you haven’t been down to the Deer Creek Tribute trail (click here and here for past posts on the trail in downtown Nevada City) you should go down and check out the recently extended loop on the other side of the pedestrian bridge. The trail is still a bit rough (not recommended for strollers), but you can add the 20 minute loop to your walk. Stop by the Outside Inn’s office for a map of the trail.
