The Riverside County Regional Park and Open-Space District (RivCoParks) offers over 140 hundred miles of trails for hiking from the Hidden Valley Wildlife Area (near Corona, CA) to Mayflower Park (on the Colorado River). Over six sites offer trails through Riverside County’s breathtaking wilderness. These trails are perfect for: individuals looking for an adventure close to home, school groups of varying ages, those looking for exercise, or even those who come from different states or nations looking to enjoy the unique beauty that Riverside County holds. The trails that these visitors use remain safe and pristine only through the hard work of volunteers like you.
RivCoParks’ Adopt-A-Trail program is designed with conservation in mind and good stewardship of the public’s land as its goals. The program focuses on engaging organizations throughout the community that want to make a difference by getting them involved in helping RivCoParks conserve and maintain our trail system. Organizations are encouraged to choose a length of the trail system that appeals to them and which will become their responsibility to help maintain for a year. During that period your organization, with help and guidance from RivCoParks staff members, will provide maintenance and clean up to your segment of trail. Also, since your organization is providing the willingness to improve our trail, we can provide the tools you need to get the job done. Finally, during that same period two signs will be posted on your portion of the trail as well as your logo on our Adopt-A-Trail website in order to recognize your organization’s good stewardship and dedication to our community.
If your organization is lacking in “manpower,” but still has a desire to help, in-kind or monetary donations are also welcome in order to help maintain the trails. Remember – every little bit helps.
Don’t have an organization? – No worries! Individuals, families and estates can all adopt trails, also.
It is only through your efforts that RivCo Parks’ regional trails will remain accessible and in pristine condition for all who come to enjoy them.
For more information regarding adoption opportunities, please call 951-955-4310.
