There are many more opportunities to get out and enjoy. You don’t have to wait for scheduled Grass Valley community events. Don’t forget about the beautiful trails available anytime. Such as the Alan Thiesen Trail. This is one of the most popular hiking trails. It is loved and travelled by locals near and far.  Nestled around Alta Sierra, the lovely trail loops along a tiny nature preserve with a park-like forest that sits on a hill. It is picturesque with small meadows and really nice views. Our options are endless in Grass Valley. Especially in the spring and summer months. See you around town!
