A special physically-distanced ceremony was held Saturday at the Gold Country Equestrian Trailhead to present this special annual award.
The nonprofit Gold Country Trails Council was formed in 1981 by a group of Nevada County citizens to fill the need for non-motorized trails in Nevada County. The Council also provides construction and maintenance of equestrian campgrounds, construction and maintenance of trails and staging areas, and provides maps and trail educational materials.
