Imagine staring down over the scenic Honey Lake Valley while breathing in the crisp fall air after completing a challenging hike to the top of Thompson Peak.
This Saturday, October 20th, Austin Meinert, chair of the Janesville Town Council, and Lassen Land and Trails Trust will wrap up the season with a scenic hike to the top of Thompson Peak.
The day will begin at 8:00 a.m. with a continental breakfast at Artisan Coffee in Janesville. Shuttles will take hikers to the trailhead at 9:00. Shuttles will return hikers to Artisan Coffee at 5:00 p.m. for a picnic dinner hosted by Artisan Coffee, Janesville Town Council and Pizza Factory.
There will also be a display of the proposed Honey Lake Rim Trail. If you’re not up for the hike, but would like to join in for the picnic dinner and learn about the proposed trail, you are welcome to do so. Please indicate dinner only when you register.
Hikers will break for lunch at the summit and visit the Lookout and Janesville Gap Filler Annex, known as the radar building, both being evaluated for the National Register of Historic Places.
The hike is challenging and will be cross-country. Lassen Land and Trails Trust recommends proper hiking boots and equipment, snacks, plenty of water and a lunch
Registration is $10 per person to help defray a portion of the costs. To register, please go to www.llttweb.org and navigate to Community/Discover Lassen or call (530) 257-3252.
