Participants of all ages and abilities were able to choose from easy, moderate and strenuous trails, including the new SilMod Loop and new Silverado Creek trail. Trail-goers could choose their own adventure with self-guided hiking and riding, or experience docent-led hikes that gave hikers insight into this historic and permanently-preserved natural area. Nearly 60 volunteers helped make the day possible, from patrolling trails to answering questions about local wildlife.
The Irvine Ranch Conservancy manages public programs on behalf of landowners like OC Parks. Wilderness Access Days have been hosted monthly in Limestone Canyon, and starting October 20, will be held in Black Star Canyon as well. Regular docent-led programs will also increase in the area, with the new trails now complete.
