National Public Lands Day

National Public Lands Day (NPLD) is an event that brings together thousands of volunteers to give back to the lands where they recreate. This year the King Range National Conservation Area (NCA) will be hosting an event to build a new section of trail around Hidden Valley on the southern end of the NCA. While many of the trails in the King Range NCA can be strenuous in some way, the Hidden Valley Interpretive Trail will provide you with an opportunity to experience the gentler side of the King Range NCA. In its entirety, the trail will consist of 2.5 miles that circumnavigate the valley while providing for interpretive opportunities and grand ocean views. In addition, there will also be opportunities to help the Bigfoot Mountain Bike Club construct a new trail that will connect with the existing Paradise Royal Mountain Bike Trail.

This is a great opportunity for you to give back to your public lands and to get out and recreate. We have over 80 miles of hiking trails for you to explore as well as 14 miles of mountain biking just minutes from where we will be working.

Volunteers will receive free camping on Friday October 14th and Saturday October 15th, one free day pass to any participating public lands (good for one year), a NPLD shirt and a BBQ hosted by the BLM. How awesome is that? Very awesome, so mark your calendar and don’t miss National Public Lands Day here at the King Range NCA on Saturday October 15, 2011!

If you plan to attend or want more information, please call Pam at 707-986-5400.
