SAN MARCOS – The city of San Marcos will present its 17th annual Trails Day from 9 a.m. to noon Nov. 1, beginning at the south end of Santa Barbara Street. This event is free and held each year to promote the extensive trail system in San Marcos.
Participants will choose from hikes of varying difficulty and will have special access to trails not usually open to the public. There will also be a 5.5-mile equestrian course offered. Riders must bring their own horse.
“This annual event draws hundreds of hikers and equestrian enthusiasts to San Marcos to explore the great outdoors and enjoy the beautiful trails in our community,” Community Services Director Craig Sargent‐Beach said. “The hikes offer amazing views of South Lake and Double Peak along with sweeping views of the city.”
Community services staff and volunteers will assist with registration, refreshment/aid stations and the Friends of San Marcos Parks and Trails membership drive. Partnerships for San Marcos Trails Day are still available.
To reach the trailhead from Highway 78, exit on Twin Oaks Valley Road and travel south. Then turn right on Craven Road and left on Santa Barbara Street.
