Important details

  • WHAT TO BE PREPARED FOR: (1) Arrive on time and be prepared to immediately carpool from the meeting place to the trailhead. (2) All ages are welcome, but those with health, breathing or balance issues should consider an easier hike. Participants on this hike must be prepared for the following: A potentially strenuous pace hiking up to 6 miles up and down slippery, steep, and rugged hills that may be full of sticky seeds and thorny plants. Expect rough, rocky, uneven ground. Some travel may be off-trail. (3) The preserve is a working ranch where free-range cattle roam as they please. (4) Visitors must be accompanied by a docent at all times. (5) Since the preserve is otherwise closed, the entry and exit gate will be locked except for the start and end times of the hike. (6) There is no drinking water. (7) There are no bathrooms. (8) In order to protect wildlife, cattle, and rare plants--and for your pet's safety--dogs are not allowed. (9) Take only pictures, leave only footprints.

  • (10) Maintain a safe distance from cattle and wildlife, and be aware that this is tick, rattlesnake, mountain lion, poison oak, and wild pig country.

  • WHAT TO BRING: (1) Hiking boots or trail running shoes with good grip (to prevent falls on the slippery, steep, rugged terrain). (2) Long socks pulled over long, sturdy pants (to protect your legs from thorny plants and any poison oak, and to make any ticks more visible so that you can brush them off you). (3) Layered clothes and protection from the elements (sun, wind, fog, rain). (4) A backpack with plenty of water and snacks. (5) You may also want to bring hiking sticks (to prevent falls), gaiters (to further protect your legs from thorny plants), bug repellent, binoculars and a camera.

  • MEETING PLACE: Since there is no parking lot at Rockville Trails Preserve, please meet your guide promptly and be ready to leave immediately from the big red barn with "Ice House" printed on its side, located on Suisun Vly Ct, near the southeast corner of the Rockville Rd. and Suisun Valley Rd. intersection, behind La Barista Espresso, Fairfield, CA. Park beside the "Ice House" lettering. A Rockville Trails Preserve docent will be there to greet you. Be ready to carpool from there to the trailhead. Map: https://goo.gl/maps/y6Zrc
