Northstar California offers the modern family that prefers substance with a unique, laid-back style, the Resort combines California cool with high-end luxury, on-mountain exhilaration with a sophisticated alpine village atmosphere
Northstar California is located on Highway 267, six miles north of Lake Tahoe and six miles south of downtown Truckee.
Offers trail rides, English and Western Style riding lessons, horse camps and birthday parties.
The first 1½ miles of the trail follows an old mining road and is relatively easy. The trail then becomes steeper, with many switchbacks as you drop down to the North Fork of the American River.
This run is one of the oldest ultra-trail events in the world and certainly one of the most challenging.
