Dye Creek Preserve Guided Hikes


We are offering three guided hikes of the Dye Creek Preserve’s canyon trail this Spring.

During each hike we will walk backwards in geologic time, observe plants and animals that inhabit the canyon, and discuss the cultural history of this land. 

This spring's guided hikes will be on March 7, April 5, and April 18. During the first hike we will visit remote parts of the canyon that require some off-trail hiking. The second and third hikes will follow our main trail to a rock overhang. All hikes are moderately difficult and will traverse 4 miles of rugged terrain. Participants should be prepared to traverse a creek and navigate areas of steep, rugged terrain. Hikes start at 9:00 am and return around 2:00 pm.

All hikes are free and open to the public, but space is limited! 

REGISTRATION: Please email shardage@TNC.ORG with the date of the hike you want to attend, number of youth and adults in your group, and your phone number. You can also register by calling 530-727-5751 (Mon-Fri 9am-5pm). Participants under 18 need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
