Carlsbad CA— The City of Carlsbad will celebrate National Trails Day on Saturday, June 3, from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., with a volunteer trail cleanup event at Rancho Carrillo Trail. The cleanup event will include weed removal, vegetation trimming, trail erosion repairs and litter pickup. The Rancho Carrillo trail features coastal scrub and non-native grasslands and is approximately four miles, divided by Melrose Drive into two routes.
Maintenance work will be done on the trail to the east of Melrose Drive, which is unpaved with gentle slopes.

  • New trail volunteers will be provided with a short training on use of tools.
  • The city will provide shovels, rakes, water and snacks.
  • Please wear closed-toe shoes, sunscreen and gloves.
  • Check in and park in the west parking lot at Carrillo Elementary School at 2875 Poinsettia Lane.
  • In the event of rain, the event will be canceled.

National Trails Day, which began in 1980, is the only nationally coordinated event designed to unite all muscle-powered trail activities with the goal of connecting more people to trails. Every trail beckons adventure and has a story to share with any person willing to discover it, and American Hiking Society believes these trail experiences can improve the lives of every American.
Each year, on the first Saturday of June, American Hiking Society and the trails community invite Americans of all ages and abilities to find their own adventure and discover their unique story at one of the thousands of events hosted throughout the country.
