    TrailFest 2014

    Join us on Sunday, June 8, 2014 from 4pm to 10pm for the 11th Annual TrailFest to celebrate your favorite trails! TrailFest is an annual fundraiser to help ARC grow and maintain local trails on the American River. This year we are the “champions” of 2 projects: development of a new trailhead and connecting trail at Salmon Falls Road (SFAR Trail), AND a connector trail between Henningsen Lotus Park and the Monroe Ridge Trail.

    Purchase your tickets in advance to avoid the line at the door: www.arconservancy.org/trailfest
