  • Working with El Dorado County OHV Division to place signs up on the Rubicon during the winter months. The last few years we have had people go up unprepared and unaware of how fast conditions change. They then find themselves in a need to be rescued.  Also, working with Peter Kraatz of Placer County to resolve snow berm issues.
  • Mid Trail Staff will have calendars, stickers, wag bags & Spill Kits to provide to users of the trail.
  • May 22, 2021  from 8-2pm Toys on the Rocks Swap Meet
