Lace up your hiking boots, air up your bike tires, saddle up your horses and join the city in celebrating the 27th annual San Marcos Trails Day on Saturday, March 3, 2018 from 9 am to 1 pm.
Hike participation is free and will begin at 9 am; hikers can start signing in at 8 am. Hikers, kids bike ride and walkers will meet at Lakeview Park/Discovery Lake, 650 Foxhall Drive. Equestrian riders will meet at the Ridgeline Trailhead, 102 San Elijo Road. The staging area will also feature food and giveaways.
“Trails day is a celebration of the outdoors and in San Marcos we have something for everyone,” said Community Services Director Buck Martin. “With more than 63 miles of trail connecting to the entire region, San Marcos offers an extensive trail network for residents to discover.”
An easy two-mile hike will visit Discovery Lake and the Discovery Creek trails. A more challenging seven-mile hike will explore the trails that lead to Double Peak Park. Mountain biking enthusiasts are encouraged to bring bikes and enjoy the ride.
“Adventures are meant to be shared and this event is a great opportunity to meet new people in your community and share a fun experience on a local trail,” said Martin.
An adult must accompany all minors. Sturdy walking shoes are recommended; bring water, sunscreen and trail snacks. Dogs must be on a maximum 6-foot leash at all times. The hike is subject to cancellation in the event of rain.
Event participants are encouraged to share your hiking moments on Instagram by tagging the city with @sanmarcoscity and using the hashtag #DiscoverSanMarcos .
