BLAZE THE SIERRA VALLEY ART + AG TRAIL

Saturday, September 30

The art and agriculture communities of Plumas and Sierra Counties are inviting the public to spend an awesome autumn day, enjoying the history, culture and bounty of one of its treasures: Sierra Valley.

Visitors should plan on beginning the day at one of three “Trailhead” information centers positioned at convenient entry points into Sierra Valley:  The Sierra Valley Grange Hall in Vinton, Sierra Valley Farms in Beckwourth and the historic Sierraville School in Sierraville. Trailheads, which will open at 9:30 a.m., will host local artists and will provide an opportunity for visitors to plan the rest of their route with a knowledgeable volunteer, to pick up a paper map and purchase a Passport or souvenir.
