Join a free guided hike of Rockville Trails Preserve on Saturday, February 22nd from 9 am to 1 pm. Get a moderate effort hike as you trek about 4 miles up and down the hilly, rocky terrain to the interior of this 1,500-acre natural area. Enjoy the majestic oaks and see the greening effects of February’s rains. Learn about the area’s natural history and watch for signs of wildlife that depend on this area for food, shelter, and safe passage. Rockville Trails Preserve is only accessible by docent-led hikes at this time.
Space is limited and advance registration is required – visit the “events calendar” at solanolandtrust.org, go tohttp://conta.cc/1nhUt0F or contact Lorenzo at email@example.com or 707-330-7263. There is no drinking water, and there are no bathrooms or parking lots on the premises yet. Dogs are not permitted. Since the preserve is otherwise closed, the entry and exit gate will be locked except for the start and end times of the hike.
Directions: Meet your guide, Lorenzo, promptly before 9 am at the big red “Ice House” building on Suisun Valley Ct., near the intersection of Rockville Rd. and Suisun Valley Rd., outside of Fairfield. Be ready to immediately carpool or caravan from there to the trailhead. Heavy rain cancels this event. Call Lorenzo if the weather is uncertain.
Bring a backpack with plenty of water and lunch. Wear hiking boots or sturdy closed-toe shoes with good tread, and long, sturdy pants and layered clothes that provide protection from the elements (sun, wind, fog, rain, cold). Hiking sticks, bug repellent, binoculars and a camera are also recommended.
Solano Land Trust’s Rockville Trails Preserve is located along Rockville Road, across from the City of Fairfield’sRockville Hills Regional Park. These natural areas are adjacent to one another, yet independently operated. Both lie between Green Valley and Suisun Valley, near Interstate 80, about half-way between San Francisco and Sacramento.
Solano Land Trust permanently protects natural areas, working farms, and ranchlands in Solano County and connects our community to these lands. Learn more at solanolandtrust.org.
