Trail and Ride Updates:
Santa Margarita Lake - April 1: 31 volunteers showed up to work on Rocky’s Trail, and
additional 4 helped with signing volunteers and organizing lunch. AHC supplied the lunch,
prepared by Margarita Market in Santa Margarita. Everyone had a great time and a lot was done.
There are still major repairs needed to be done on the single track trails and progress is being made, however an opening date remains undetermined.
River Road Horse Camp May 13, 9am: On May 13, the club is having a workday to repair the fencing, clean up the debris, and install a shed to house the wheelbarrow and trail tools. There is so much to do that it probably can’t all get completed in one day. AHC took the lead on getting the horse camp approved and installed so please come out to help get it back in shape. Please bring shovels, rakes, hat, gloves, water and a snack. Wear long pants and work shoes.
Unfortunately, access to the River Road trails remains closed. Blinn Ranch Road took a major hit, and Parks will be coordinating with Cal Fire to repair the road.
Montana de Oro Horse Camp: During the week of April 10, Coast Mounted Assistance (CMA) volunteers worked at the horse camp, replacing damaged corrals panels, weed
whacking, replacing wheelbarrows and rakes, cleaning water troughs, cleaning out the corrals and adding native soil or base in and around the corrals. Many work hours and lots of tired volunteers got the horse camp in great shape for the camping season. If you see a CMA
volunteer out on the trail, please thank them for their hard work.
