Cronan Ranch & Magnolia Ranch Permitted Events
NOTICE: Permitted events will be taking place on public lands. See dates below.
All permitted events will be staged at the Magnolia Ranch Trailhead.
The Cronan Ranch Regional Trails Park is located in Pilot Hill, California. The Park contains 12 miles of trails for hiking, biking, horseback riding, fishing, bird watching and other passive recreation. The Park is open daily from sunrise to sunset year round. There is a wide variety of terrain to choose from, including gently sloped to challenging hills, oak woodland and gentle riverfront trails. Each season offers a diverse experience.
The land for this park and river trail corridor was purchased by the American River Conservancy, BLM and other partners over a period of 16 years and placed into public trust to be used for recreation and wildlife conservation. The purchase was made possible through generous donations by individuals, private foundations and government agencies, including the Wildlife Conservation Board and the California State Resources Agency.
Ultimately, the Cronan Ranch Regional Trails Park will connect with the South Fork American River corridor trail that will run from Greenwood Creek to Salmon Falls.
