The U.S. Forest Service, assisted by Truckee River Day volunteers, will dedicate the Hobart Mills Trailhead at 11am Oct. as part of the Truckee River Day event.
In conjunction with Caltrans, efforts to close a user-created parking area adjacent to Highway 89 and Prosser Creek will begin on Tuesday.
Historically used to access the Commemorative Overland Emigrant Trail, the popularity of this trailhead prompted natural resource and safety concerns. The USFS designed and implemented the construction of a spacious new trailhead around the corner from the user-created access off of Hobart Mills Road. The new trailhead is open and available for use.
The new parking area is designed to provide users with a more safe and expansive area for loading and unloading, with less adverse impact on natural resources in the area.
