Resort Amenities


There’s so much to do at Nakoma it’s hard to know where to start. And best of all, there’s plenty to do for the whole family without ever leaving the resort. Take a hike on Nakoma’s trail system. Members can spend the day at Altitude enjoying the gym, climbing wall, or lounging by the pool. Everyone can enjoy stunning views of the Lost Sierra from the golf course. When it’s time to dine, sample the mountain-modern menu of Restaurant Fifty44 in the Frank Lloyd Wright Lodge. It’s all right here waiting for you.

LODGE CONNECTOR – This very short connector trail enables Guests staying at the Lodge to quickly access the Nakoma Trail System. After leaving the Lodge parking area you’ll spot the road Double Eagle. Follow the road up a short way to connect into the Interpretive, Dancing Bears and Cool Water Trails.

VILLAGE TRAIL – A short, leisurely path that winds through the Village connecting the Lodge and Clubhouse. This 0.3 mile trail travels along Statue Pond, Nakoma Creek and the soon-to-be built Altitude Recreational Center. Watch for traffic as this trail requires crossing County Road A-15 and Great Spirit.

This 0.6 mile trail can be accessed from either A-15 or Great Spirit. It is level as it traverses the Dragon Golf Course. The trail then makes its way upward to Great Spirit. Along the trail, 27 native trees and plants are identified. No dogs are permitted on this trail because it goes through the golf course.

CLOUDS REST TRAIL –  This trail begins on Great Spirit where the Interpretive Trail ends. Some sections of this 0.7 mile trail are strenuous. Clouds Rest Trail provides access to three other trails: Boulder Garden, Blazing Star and Eagles Nest.

BOULDER GARDEN TRAIL – This short, moderately difficult, 0.2 mile trail takes the hiker to interesting granite outcroppings which make a wonderful setting for a picnic. The trail terminates at the intersection of Moon Shadow and Startop.

BLAZING STAR TRAIL – Strenuous at times, this 0.8 mile trail can be reached from the Clouds Rest Trail or Clouds Rest Road. The final portion of the trail travels through a heavily wooded area and ends abruptly at the National Forest boundary. There are no views from this trail, but plenty of quiet and solitude.

EAGLES NEST TRAIL – This trail provides a great view of peaks to the west and the Portola area. It can be accessed from several points: the terminus of the Clouds Rest Trail and on the Eagles Nest loop. It is fairly short at 0.4 miles but moderately difficult with one steep stretch.

DANCING BEARS TRAIL – The longest in the system at 1.8 miles, this trail provides a great view of the community. Generally, it’s an easy trail with some elevation gain at the end. The trail can be accessed at both Dancing Bears gates and north of A-15 across from the Interpretive Trail.

COOL WATER TRAIL – Beginning on the north side of A-15, this easy 0.4 mile trail crosses Deer Trail (road) as it heads toward the Plumas National Forest. Once at the boundary, hikers may wish to make their way down to the Middle Fork of the Feather River.

FALLING WATER RIVER ACCESS – The most strenuous trail in the system, Falling Water holds the most promise for experiencing the Feather River. After a short hike and lots of switchbacks, hikers can proceed parallel to the river for 0.8 miles. There are several branches which lead to the river for fishing, picnicking and enjoyment of this delightful area.

DEER TRAIL RIVER ACCESS – This trail is the quickest way to the Feather River. From Deer Trail it’s a short 0.1 mile to the Union Pacific Railroad tracks where the trail ends. It’s more fun going down than up! Proceed at your own risk along the tracks in either direction to the river.

SUNBURST TRAIL – Located in the same general area as the Paint Brush Trail, this level trail of 0.3 miles ends at the National Forest boundary. Hikers can follow deer trails and/or the stream bed to the Feather River (approximately 0.5 miles more).

PAINT BRUSH TRAIL – This short trail begins between Paint Brush and Emerald Point and ends at the National Forest boundary. Pick up several deer trails to hike westerly for scenic views of the Feather River.


For homeowners who love to take the path less traveled, Nakoma features maintained on-property trails right out the front door. Explore the gorge through which the federally designated wild-&-scenic Middle Fork of the Feather River flows. Or take in the endless views of Eureka Peak, Mt. Washington and Elwell Peak from the highest point of the development along Eagles Nest Trail. Solitude and scenery… what else does a nature lover need?

The Inn at Nakoma Lobby

The Inn at Nakoma is a spacious, sleek, yet comfy 42-room boutique hotel situated at the base of the resort to greet guests from far and wide.

Members can take advantage of the Inn as an “instant extra bedroom” when family or guests come to visit at Nakoma… because they will come!
