General Overview of Trail
The American Discovery Trail enters California on the Tahoe Rim Trail on the eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada Mountains at about 9000 feet. Lake Tahoe lies a few miles to the south and its magnificence can occasionally be seen from the trail. From Squaw Valley the ADT follows the Western States Trail, descending from 8,700 feet at Emigrant Pass in the Sierras to 1,300 feet at Auburn while dropping into and back out of several very deep canyons. En route, the ADT follows the 2,600 mile long Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail for several miles as the ADT passes through the Granite Chief Wilderness.

General Overview of Trail
Nevada is a state of extremes. It has the least rainfall of any state, one of the smallest populations, and twenty-eight north-south mountain ranges that wrinkle the floor of the Great Basin. Its mines have produced vast amounts of silver, gold, and copper. Most of its rivers drain into "sinks" without outlets where the water evaporates, leaving alkali mud flats and dry lakes. Yet, it is one of the most visited of the fifty states, thanks to Reno and Las Vegas.

Hiking & Local Trails | Nevada City California

Nevada City is fortunate enough to have the Tahoe National Forest as its back yard. With over 655 miles of accessible trails, numerous State Park, BLM and National Forest camp sites and unlimited lakes, rivers and streams for fishing enthusiasts, Nevada City has become known as “ground-zero” for non-motorized recreational participants. Castle Peak, Grouse Ridge and the Sierra Buttes areas host the Pacific Crest Trail, known to hikers from around the world as the prime hiking route of the western United States.

Complete Guide to John Muir Trail -Trail log

Rocky is the way to describe our day. Woke up to grey skies and humid, cool air. Just right for going up 1200 feet. As we passed through one glacial boulder field after another, the wildness of the area was apparent. ("continued to escalate exponetially," said Steve)

Sapphire Lake was the first after Evolution, a deep blue even in grey skies. The mountains were sharply angulated, and huge boulders dotted the landscpe. Some were broken in half as if they fell our of the sky and split in place. Others looked like modern sculptures. Water poured out of all the higher drainages. There was still some snow in the north faces. Small birds fluttered as we walked, as if begging us for a cracker.
