In 2004, the American River Conservancy embarked on a campaign to build the first multi-use recreational trail system along the South Fork American River. Over the past decade with support from the local community and public agencies, ARC has preserved nearly 3,000 thousand of acres of open space and built over 20 miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails near the South Fork.

On Sunday, June 9th, the American River Conservancy hosts the tenth annual American River TrailFest at Earthtrek Expeditions in Lotus, CA. TrailFest is a family-friendly event that features live music, BBQ dinner, microbreweries and local wineries, live and silent auctions, and Kids’ Zone activity tent. This year, the event features a line-up of talented musicians headlined by local favorites, The Rusty Buckets. Arann Harris and the Farm Band, Nancy Cassidy with Dayan Kai, and Tiffani Shiro and Hugh Hoeger are also slated to perform.

The community-driven event raises money for ARC’s American River Trail Campaign, which aims to secure funding for our next two trail projects: a trailhead parking facility (with equestrian access)near Salmon Falls, and an additional 1 ½ miles of trail at the western end of the South Fork American River Trail. The second project will focus on a connector trail to link Henningsen Lotus Park and Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park in Coloma.

This is an event for the whole family. Tickets are available online at www.arconservancy.org/trailfest2013. $30/adults (21 +), $15 youth (ages 8-20), 7 and under is free. Ticket includes dinner, 2 wine and beer tickets, live entertainment and auctions. Doors open at 3 pm; music begins at 3:30 and carries on throughout the evening.

TrailFest is a great community event that brings people together to help preserve that which makes El Dorado County so unique – our beautiful rivers, scenic landscapes, and recreational trails.
