Davis Creek Nature Trail

Davis Creek Nature Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Perfect for a family outing, this pretty little nature trail offers a quick and easy tour through the ecological transition zone between the lower montane ecosystem and the high desert, where the yellow pine forests of the Sierra’s lower slopes give way to the sages and scrubs of the Great Basin.

The “Davis Creek Naturalist Guide,” available at the trailhead, describes the geology and habitats that you’ll encounter along this lovely foothill path, which incorporates high desert, lower montane, and riparian environments. Take
some time along the first part of the route to enjoy views across the Washoe Valley and at the end to listen to the quiet of the forest."
