The American River Conservancy is offering a hike on the South Fork of the American River trail on May 4. The five-hour hike will be led by Tony Cervantes, ARC volunteer, and Shingle Springs Tribal TANF Program prevention coordinator.
The trail should still be green and may even still have wildflowers. This trail includes a little bit of everything: grasslands, oak woodland, chaparral and riparian habitats. The guides will share the trail with mountain bikers and equestrians, too.
This hike is good for beginners and fun for everyone else with about 700 feet of vertical gain/loss; the total hike is about 8-10 miles.
The hike is from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Ages 12 and over are welcome and the hike will be canceled if there is rain. There is a suggested donation of $5 for members and $10 for non-members.
