Wildlife on the Trail: Mountain lions, snakes, and bears - oh my! The amazing part about being out on the trails is you will most likely see some sort of wildlife while you are out there. So what do you do if you come across one of Mother Nature's creatures? We have the answer!
The Scoop On Trail Shoes: So you're ready to make the transition from road to trail...but why do you need a different shoe? And more importantly, what makes a trail shoe different? We've got your scoop!
Carpooling: We encourage carpooling to all our trail training locations. We will have a carpool list at all workouts. Add your name and number and check the sheet often if you are interested in carpooling. You can also reach out to your fellow Trail Heads in our private Facebook group for carpool planning, as well. See link to the group below.
Poppy Pass: Many of our training locations will have pay-for parking. One of the best ways to avoid these fees is to purchase a California State Poppy Pass. There will be a few opportunities where Ranger Pat will come to a workout to sell Poppy Passes. You may also purchase these online or at the Park Pass Sales Office located at 1416 9th Street, Room 144, Sacramento, California. When you purchase local- the money stays local!

Please read the page rules as well. Here is how to join:
