Rockville Trails: Opening for Docent-led Hikes
by Deanna Mott, Associate Director
Spring is an appropriate season to show off Rockville Trails to the public for the first time. As the last rains of the season fall and new blooms push through the soil and the colors on the landscape change, we will host our first-ever docent-led hike for the public on April 20. We are excited to share this new, awe-inspiring park with you!
Education and Outreach Coordinator Natalie DuMont has been working for several months to recruit and train docents to lead safe and informative tours on the property, and the docents are helping to coordinate the outings to help us share this special place.
We anticipate offering hikes most Saturdays. Simultaneously, the Rockville Trails sub-committee will continue to meet and discuss elements that need to be included in the management plan, and we will plot our way through the required processes.
Initially there will be two temporary parking areas that can accommodate 10 vehicles each during dry weather. We encourage everyone to carpool to maximize the number of visitors and reduce traffic and parking constraints.
It is important to know that access to Rockville Trails is only by docent-led hikes at this time. Capacity is limited, and a RSVP is required. Check the events calendar at solanolandtrust.org for more information.
