FALL SPECIAL – run free! SVC is sponsoring the cost for the September trail run. Kick off the fall season by bringing a friend out to run the trails. Pre-registration is still required.
Join us for a Saturday morning trail run! Explore a new area of Deer Creek Hills Preserve from 8:00-11:00am. Attendees can either follow the marked loops through the north property for self-guided running. Or, at 8:30am, participate in a docent-guided, 5-6 mile run along an alternate route. Space is limited for the docent-guided run.
- Pre-register before 6pm on Friday and
- Complete a liability waiver before arriving and
- Bring photo ID and proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID 19 to participate in the docent-guided run. Proof of vaccination is not required for self-guided trail running.
Donations are vital to maintaining the Preserve and offering public outings. Consider donating online or leaving a few bucks in the donation jar at the registration table. If the fee is a burden please request a fee waiver by emailing email@example.com.
We have put procedures and policies in place for the safety of the public, volunteers, and staff during the Coronavirus pandemic. We are only able to offer public hikes/rides and activities if all the following protocols are observed. Thank you for your cooperation.
THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU REGISTER:
- You must register by 6pm the evening prior and sign a liability waiver.
- The road to access Deer Creek Hills is not paved and requires crossing Crevis Creek. 4WD and higher clearance vehicles are recommended, especially in the spring when there is water in Crevis Creek, but are not required. Visitors who do not want to drive through the creek crossing may choose to park along the shoulder of Latrobe Road, cross on foot, and walk the remaining mile to the trailhead at Eagle Camp Corral. All properties before the creek crossing are private property. Please respect our neighbors. Do not cross gates or climb fences.
- All events are subject to weather conditions. Projected rain, high creek levels, or extremely muddy conditions on the Preserve may cancel the outing. In the summer, extreme temperatures or unsafe air quality will also cancel outings. We will do our best to notify registered guests the evening prior via email. In the case of inclement weather please check our online calendar for cancellation postings before you travel to the preserve.
- Gates open at 7:30am and close at 11am.
- There is no running water on site. Arrive hydrated and bring plenty of drinking water. Porta-potties are available at the trailhead and serviced every Friday. Bring your own hand sanitizer. Leave No Trace Ethics; Pack It In – Pack It Out.
BEFORE YOU ATTEND:
- Review the information on your confirmation email advising you of what to bring and how to prepare. Check the weather forecast and plan accordingly. Wearing layers is recommended, wear sturdy closed-toed shoes, and bring a cell phone, snacks and plenty of water.
- If you have had any flu-like or COVID-19 symptoms, fever, or cough in the past 24 hours, or think you have been exposed to someone with the virus, please stay home and join us another time.
- Before leaving your home, take your temperature (must be less than 100.4º), and thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water.
- Review the most recent Sacramento County Public Health Order, the most up to date CDC recommendations and adhere to any other mandated directives for your place of residence.
- Print and fill out this Liability Waiver and bring it with you. It is recommended that your emergency contact not be someone who is attending with you, just in case you are both injured.
- Bring a photo ID and printed proof of vaccination status or have it ready on your cell phone.
WHAT TO LEAVE HOME:
