Redlands has more than 26 miles of public trails, but who knew? When Redlands Conservancy signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the City of Redlands in 2008 to manage the Heritage Trails, we needed a way to help Redlands’ residents and visitors learn about the urban and public trails. So we started a semi-annual series of trail excursions on Redlands’ public trails – Trails at 10. Why 10? All the events start at 10 AM.
Each April and each October, Conservancy volunteers organize separate trail events, guiding enthusiasts to learn about the trails – long and short, fancy and rustic. Each event lasts about 2 hours, includes a brief talk about the trail, a guided hike, and a free lunch for the first 50 participants to sign up on Eventbrite – yes, there really is such a thing as a free lunch! In this case, the lunches are sponsored by a grant from Beaver Medical Group.

The 2019 Trails at 10 Spring series holds its first hike on Saturday, April 13, with the event staging at Redlands Gateway Ranch in Live Oak Canyon. Hikers will be guided to the trails, either south of the ranch on the Saha’Tapa Trail or north, across the creek onto Herngt ‘Aki’ Preserve trails. To register, please go to Eventbrite.com
On Saturday, April 20, we will be hiking the new Zanja Trail! Hikers will meet at the Zanja Park for an easy 2- mile loop with Orange Blossom Trail, while hearing the history of the Mill Creek Zanja. To register, please go to Eventbrite.com
Each Trails at 10 event will be limited to 75 or more hikers, and the first 50 registrants will receive a free lunch through a grant from the Beaver Medical Group.
