It is on this property that I saw my first grouse. Also look for warblers-notably Audubon's and the Hermit Warblers- along with the White-headed Woodpecker. You will likely hear a Pileated Woodpecker and if you are lucky you will see one Learn more about this land: Welcome to Sugarpine Slopes. The Sugarpine has the longest cones in the world and many birds and mammals like the pine nuts and use the tree for habitat. This is a spring through fall place only. There is no winter access. The property is at 5800 feet.  Depending on the weather the road may close from Nov 15th to May 15th.  The road on the property is a dirt road.  All wheel drive or 4WD vehicles recommended although the lower section could be accessed by most vehicles. Shorter trailers allowed at Site A. Site 3 can also accommodate a small teardrop-style trailer The property is totally undeveloped at this time. It is a wildlife corridor for deer and bear (keep all food contained), the mountain quail and the blue grouse. Keep your eyes open for the Hermit Warbler, Audubon's Warbler, and our gorgeous visitor from the tropics the Western Tanager. You are likely to hear the Pileated Woodpecker and if you are lucky you will see it and its red crest in an undulating flight through the trees. The property has a lovely west facing slope which climbs gradually at first then more steeply to the top of the property. We have drive-in camping on the lower section.  There is one walk-in site at the top of the property. There is wonderful hiking nearby with several trailheads in the area within approximately 4 miles.  More information can be provided upon request.

Sunnyside Site A at Grouse Ridge
Everything was great except I couldn’t get the cable unlocked. As such, I had to drive over the cable.

Site 3 Hermit Warbler
Fav HipCamp Spot!
Second time staying here and we were the only campers again. Just such a great site. Close to lots of trails, quiet, and has a clean little outhouse. We’ll be back!

Site 3 Hermit Warbler
Stellar weekend!
This is a great site, only 40 min from Truckee but tucked away in your own private section of the forest

Sunnyside Site A at Grouse Ridge
Beautiful drive up the property! I would highly recommend for a quick getaway. It’s not too far from civilization but just far enough to enjoy the peace and quiet sounds of nature. Property was very easy to find. If you open the directions from the app into GPS… it puts you exactly where the entrance to the dirt road is. No service once you are there but GPS should be able to track you to the exact spot with out service. Beautiful and private camping spots!
