Great Opportunity to help reopen Emerald Canyon Trail!!! February 1

Exciting Trail Work Day to Reopen Emerald Canyon Trail

SHARE/IMBA members have a great opportunity to assist OC Parks in reopening this trail is coming up! On February 1st, our partners OC Parks, LCF and IRC are having a trail work day to clear vegetation through out this area to prepare for the placement of a bridge.

RSVPs are a must! Click Here to RSVP

If you’re a OC MTB rider than  you are  probably familiar with the Emerald Canyon Trail below the BVD and Old Emerald trail intersections that are known as “The Trail To Nowhere”.  This hidden gem is one of the most beautiful trails in Laguna Beach, and goes through an incredibly diverse and beautiful range of habitat.

Unfortunately, a couple of years ago, heavy rains completely washed out a 60 foot portion of the trail leaving behind  a gully that is close to 30 feet deep, and 60 feet wide! Well the opportunity to assist OC Parks in reopening this trail is coming up! On February 1st we will be working to clear vegetation through out this area to prepare for the placement of a new bridge over the gully. Please volunteer on this day and be part of the reopening of Emerald Canyon Trail!
