Tickets will be available on Earth Day, April 22, and, like every year in the past ten, are expected to sell out early.
“Tickets will go on sale April 22 and are expected to sell out early given the popularity of this year’s participating artists and beauty of Lake Tahoe in September,” adds Lopez. Spooner Lake, located at an elevation of 6,980 feet, is an easy drive from the Sacramento, Reno, Carson City, Truckee, Tahoe City and Incline Village. Tickets for the art hikes and concert will go on sale on Earth Day.
Advance sellouts have become the norm for Trails and Vistas.
- Early bird art hike: $30 per adult, $10 per child (5 to 12 years old) when purchased by July 15

In addition to the art hikes, there will be an evening world music concert featuring prominent and celebrated musicians on Saturday, Sept. 6. In addition to the general public, people who treasure the environment and the arts but may be unaccustomed to hiking at altitude are encouraged to experience music and dance at the world concert. The concert includes multiple acts and serves as a fundraiser for Trails and Vistas’ Art in Nature fieldtrips.
Trails & Vistas collaborates with community partners including InnerRhythms Dance Theatre, KidZone Museum, For Goodness Sake, Arts in Wellness and Truckee Donner Land Trust. This year's art hikes are co-hosted by Lake Tahoe Nevada State Parks.

Trails & Vistas is a 501 c 3 nonprofit organization that creates art experiences in nature to inspire environmental awareness. Trails & Vistas’ Art Hikes are a collaborative effort led by Founder / Artistic Director Nancy Tieken Lopez with Performance Director Elizabeth Archer and vital support from volunteers and regional organizations including the Truckee Donner Land Trust, InnerRhythms Dance Theatre, For Goodness Sake and the KidZone Children’s Museum. The first art hike was created as Tieken-Lopez’ thesis project in 1994. In addition to annual public art hikes, Trails & Vistas will also present an Art in Nature field trips for 300 local third grade students and second annual world music concert in 2014.
