Trail Run - Saddleback Fire Lookout, Eureka Diggins
Saturday, July 20, 2019, 8:30 AM until 8:00 PM
11509 Northwoods Blvd
Truckee, CA 96161
Bring lots of food and non alcholic drinks. Be prepared for dusty roads. There is a rocky trail and stairs to the fire lookout so sturdy shoes are recommended. The Saddleback Fire Lookout has lots of butterflies and hummingbirds. Tony is the Fire Lookout scheduled to be on duty.
Saddleback Fire Lookout has wonderful panoramic views of the area. There are old gold mines all over including extensive hydraulic mining sites. We’ll drive through the Eureka Diggings as we circle back to Highway 49. We did a pre-run down to La Porte and have decided to change the route as it was a 13 hour day. The new route will be faster and suitable for stock Jeeps and other high clearance 4x4s.
