Celebrate a Decade of Building Trails with Music and BBQ at the American River TrailFest

Celebrate a Decade of Building Trails with Music and BBQ at the American River TrailFest

 

In 2004, the American River Conservancy embarked on a campaign to build the first multi-use recreational trail system along the South Fork American River. Over the past decade with support from the local community and public agencies, ARC has preserved nearly 3,000 thousand of acres of open space and built over 20 miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails near the South Fork.

On Sunday, June 9th, the American River Conservancy hosts the tenth annual American River TrailFest at Earthtrek Expeditions in Lotus, CA. TrailFest is a family-friendly event that features live music, BBQ dinner, microbreweries and local wineries, live and silent auctions, and Kids’ Zone activity tent. This year, the event features a line-up of talented musicians headlined by local favorites, The Rusty Buckets.
