ATTENTION ALL NORTHERN CALIFORNIA EQUESTRIANS:
PLEASE HELP SAVE ROCKVILLE TRAILS!
opportunity to purchase 1,500 acres of equestrian trails and open space has presented
itself in Solano County. But Solano Land Trust must raise at least $5.5 million more before February
28, 2012 or this opportunity may be lost forever.
Rockville Trails would add significantly to trail riding opportunities in the region. Trails on the property range from flat
terrain with easy, wide fire roads to challenging hill-topping. Rockville Trails also boasts great natural beauty and is easily
accessible off of I-80. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today!
on Rockville Trails
this year, a settlement in a decades-long legal conflict made it possible to permanently protect Rockville Trails from development.
The agreement makes way for the property to be preserved as habitat, open space, and public trails. If Solano Land Trust is
able to raise sufficient funds to purchase the property, it could ultimately connect trails and open space from Fairfield to Skyline Wilderness Park in the Napa Valley and the Napa River as part of the Bay
Area Ridge Trail. The trails on the property would be open to equestrians, hikers, and bikers.
The terms of the settlement state that the $13.5 million
purchase must be completed by February 28, 2012. $8 million has been raised to date. If the Trust is unable to raise the remaining
funds by the deadline, the current property owner retains the right to build up to 185 homes on the site.
