Comment: This is great! I'll look forward to seeing more reports & hope to get up that way soon. Great job! Question: could you add a map on each trail page? I believe you can create them from GoogleMaps, so the person can see the location (and click on the map to zoom in, get directions, etc). It would be really helpful!

Comment: Dear Equestrians, We wanted to make you aware, and hopefully you can help spread the word, that the Acorn Creek (AKA Salmon Falls Ranch) trailhead will be opening in early May. This means equestrians will now be able to ride from Cronan Ranch, all the way to Salmon Falls Rd. We’re offering one more call-out to anyone who would like their name on the plaque to be made. All donations of $1000 or more received for this campaign by March 16th will have their name engraved in perpetuity. All donations can be mailed to the address below. Our ribbon-cutting is scheduled for May 4th at 10am. We want a big crowd, but due to parking that day no horse trailers will be allowed, sorry. (We will have a couple horses there for photo op only).
