WNC vets invited on Spooner Lake hike

Western Nevada College

Western Nevada College student veterans are invited to join fellow student veterans from the University of Nevada, Reno and Truckee Meadows Community College for a hiking event on July 27 at Spooner Lake/Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park.

The preregistration deadline is July 25.

The easy 2-mile hike on the Spooner Loop Trail will begin at 10 a.m., so participants are encouraged to arrive in the parking lot by 9 a.m. Preregistered participants will be sent a parking pass prior to the event, to avoid paying a $6 parking fee at the state park.

A barbecue will be provided following the hike.

Participants are advised to wear appropriate clothing and shoes, and to carry water. Spooner Lake/Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park is 15 miles southwest of Carson City, near the intersection of U.S. Highway 50 West and State Route 28 at Lake Tahoe. Parking is on a first-come, first-served basis.
