Trails and Vistas

You've never experienced anything like this art hike. Trails and Vistas art hikes unite live music, dance, storytelling, sculpture and painting with the natural environment to create one of a kind art hikes in the Sierra Nevada.

In addition to the art hikes, Trails & Vistas World Concert will take place at Sand Harbor on Saturday, Sept. 9 and Sunday, September 10, 2017. This year's Art Hikes will take place at Galena Creek Canyon, Mount Rose/Washoe County, NV

More than 30 participating artists including musicians, dancers, poets, singers and visual artists will perform aside breathtaking vistas among the pine trees. Each hiker is encouraged to slow down, breathe deeply and listen to the language of nature during Trails & Vistas. Art hikes will be offered every 15 minutes from 9 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

Specialty hikes include family hikes for those hiking with children, meditative hikes for those wanting an especially quiet and spiritual connection (adults only) and leisurely hikes for those who prefer or need a slower pace. Tickets sell out in advance nearly every year. Tickets are $35 for adults and $15 for children. The art-hike lasts approximately 3 hours and is best for people in good physical condition who are comfortable hiking at altitude.

“We believe that the arts transform the human experience, that art is a gift to be shared. We proudly support this annual event,” explains Nancy Lopez, Artistic Director of the Trails & Vistas Art Hikes.
