Rebuild Independence Trail

Bear Yuba Land Trust’s FUND-A-NEED: Rebuild Independence Trail

The beloved Independence Trail suffered significant damage from the Jones Fire in August 2020. All wooden structures within the fire perimeter along Independence Trail West, including the iconic flume spanning Rush Creek and the Rush Creek Ramp, were consumed by the blaze. Built with the hands of local volunteers under the vision of John Olmsted, this heartfelt endeavor became the first wheelchair accessible wilderness trail in the United States. BYLT are committed to the rebuild and are going to need your support! Donations, of any amount, are now being accepted.
