EVENTS COMING UP:
Sunday May 18, 2014 Hellhole Canyon Hike Cancelled. Due to the stress on resources this week because of the fires, we were notified by Park Rangers that Hellhole Canyon would not be open tomorrow. We are sorry for the inconvenience and hope to reschedule soon. Please contact hike leader Anita Noone if you have any questions. Here is the flyer for the hike: Hellhole Canyon Preserve Hike
Sunshine Stroll and Dessert postponed for now, please stay tuned for more information to come once we have a new date.
Thanks to everyone who joined us for our annual VCTA OPEN HOUSE! The Open House was held Saturday October 19th at the Valley Center Library and many folks came out to enjoy food, a slideshow and the wonderful music of Trails and Rails! We look forward to seeing you all again next year.
Date TBD: VCTA apologizes for the postponement of the July 20 sponsored GPS class at the Library 2-4pm. We are working with securing an instructor and hope to have a date for the class in the near future. Please contact Jessica Zichichi if you are interested in this class and if there is something in particular you would like to have the GPS instructor cover. Thank you!
The New Trail Plaques are up! Come walk the trail and admire them.

This link is courtesy of the Irvine Ranch Conservancy. It is an excellent reminder to us all how to share the trails with others and worth the read! As we continue to grow trails in Valley Center, we are reminded to be courteous to our fellow trail walkers, riders and bikers so the trails can be enjoyed by all.
BE SURE TO FIND OUR GEOCACHING SPOTS ALONG HERITAGE TRAIL! For more information, visit www.geocaching.com Sign up for a free geocaching membership and you can find our cache along with several others in Valley Center. It's local treasure hunting fun!
SUPPORT VALLEY CENTER TRAILS with a t-shirt! T-shirts and other merchandise can be purchased at:
The VCTA has its first priority to help the county to acquire voluntary easements for a staging area and trail branching off Heritage Trail along Keys Creek for more than a mile into the canyon. Eventually, that trail may extend for six miles, connecting through the canyon along the creek to the future Lilac Ranch project.
Other high priorities include safe trails/pathways to and from our schools and the town center, entry into Daley Ranch from Mirar de Valle, and trails on the western edge of the Rincon Reservation. These, and other map additions are very exciting opportunities for the community and VCTA. It takes a lot of time, effort and money --anything you can do to help is a great community contribution!
Any individual, business, or organization sympathetic to supporting non-motorized trails in Valley Center may join VCTA by contacting Membership Chair Fred Wollman at 760-518-8545 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Annual dues are $10 for students and seniors over 55, and $25 for households or businesses (only one vote per membership please). Reciprocal memberships with Friends of Hellhole Canyon are also available for only $15 in addtion to your VCTA membership. Let's support Valley Center as a community. Thank you!
