Sierra Buttes Hiking and Camping

August 21 - 23, 2009 (Closed)


Get ready to rough it! Well... sort of. In late-August, Saga North is going into the cooler Sierras to hike, camp, and star gaze.

On Friday, August 21, we will start camping on 30 acres of forest supported by the trip leader's home in Grass Valley. Social/BBQ dinner (burgers/salads/beer/snacks) starts around 5pm. Numerous rustic camping/parking options (hotel in town at own expense).

On Saturday, we'll drive to the camp site at Upper Tamarack Lake and hike to Sierra Buttes             

(about 7 miles round trip). This is a spectacular area with swimming holes and gorgeous natural scenery. Check out the video of last year's trip.

We will spend Saturday night under the stars then take off leisurely on Sunday.

The trip leader has been visiting this area for years and is positive you will love it too.

Participants are invited to camp Sunday night at the Grass Valley facility.

Saga North will provide breakfast, lunch, and dinner, though we encourage you to bring water and to assist with food preparation.
