Meet the newest trail at our Harvego Bear River Preserve!
This particular section of trail is BRAND NEW, constructed earlier this spring! It’s located quite a distance away from the trailhead – so unfortunately we won’t be visiting it on our regular docent led hikes just yet. But, once this trail system is open to the public, we KNOW it will be loved by hikers, trail runners, mountain bikers, and horseback riders – or anyone looking for a longer adventure in the outdoors!
We’re working hard to build new trails as a result of our Trails & Recreation Capital Campaign, which was made possible by our generous members who contributed to the campaign. This new trail is just one stretch of the many miles of new trails Placer Land Trust has built in the last two years, and will continue to build in the near future.
We also recently received a $20,000 grant from REI to build even more trails for our trail system, from Coon Creek to the Bear River. If you are interested in joining our trail team – building and maintaining trails – contact our office and we’ll add you to the list. We won’t be doing much on the trails this summer, but once the weather cools back down, we’ll be back at it.
Slowly but surely, we’re getting closer to connecting these trails to Hidden Falls Regional Park and opening up a vast network of trails for the public to enjoy. For a list of trails already open to the public, click here.
Thanks for your support in making this possible!
