What is MOMs?
MOMs on the Mountain is a fundraiser for the Nevada City Schools Foundation, which benefits the students of our school district. It is a non-competitive day of scenic beauty, personal challenge and fun for women: mothers and non-moms alike. We’ve had 3 generations hiking and raising funds at the same event. Our hikers have ranged in age from 18 to 80+.

Why Should You Come?
It's really fun and it's for the kids! The Nevada City Schools Foundation provides funding to support the STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) program and many other student enrichment programs.
There will be three well-marked hiking options. The easiest option will be just under 3 miles out and back to Mary Lake. The intermediate hike will be a 5 mile loop and the most challenging hike is an 8 mile loop out towards Mt. Anderson Peak. Both the intermediate and challenging hikes are along the beautiful Pacific Crest Trail with lots of fresh air and breathtaking views. The 8 mile route crests at the top of Mount Judah with a perfect place to snap photos with Lake Tahoe in the distance.
If you think you are up for the full challenge to Mt. Anderson you will need to leave early (as it is a longer trek) and we are to return back to the lodge by 12:00pm.
