Lost Sierra Route

Post by hikeaz »

The Lost Sierra Route will encompass scenic stretches of the Yuba River. When it’s completed, the new 600-mile Lost Sierra Route will wind along the rugged ridgeline of 15 Northern California and Nevada mountain towns, from Truckee to Susanville. With the first section of the trail expected to open in 2023 (and the entire path slated for completion by 2030), outdoor enthusiasts will be able to go hiking and biking on a single-track trail that will wind past spectacular alpine lakes, through historic mining towns, into green valleys, and across mountain meadows.
At the point where the Northern Sierra Nevada meets the southernmost slice of the Cascade Range, the new network of trails will weave through three California counties linking the towns of Truckee, Loyalton, Sierraville, Sierra City, Downieville, Quincy, Graeagle, Portola, Taylorsville, Greenville, Jonesville, Chester, Westwood, and Susanville, as well as Reno, Nevada.

Appears to still be in the conceptual phase, using multi-use trails (hike, bike, e-bike, horse, motorcycle) to link towns and promote tourism and economic development.

I'm sure there's some nice terrain in there, but IMHO the good stuff is south of 108.
