Sports & Recreation

Hiking, Bicycling, Horseback Riding

Nevada County’s Trails crisscross our towns, our forests our parks and our river canyons, providing hundreds of miles of varying terrain at elevations from a few hundred feet to over 10,000 feet. There are trails for horses, for bicycles, and for hikers. Some are multi-use and some are exclusive to certain types of traffic, but there’s plenty to go around, so be sure you’re using them appropriately. In winter, many of them become cross-country ski trails, too. Nevada County Trails

Skiing & Snowboarding in Nevada County

Nevada County is the home to some of the world’s best skiing. Using Truckee as a base, you can ski for weeks and never cover the same run twice. Or stay in Nevada City or Grass Valley, below the snowline, and just make the drive to the high country to ski for the day.
