We need your comments to help convince the Placer County Board of Supervisors to approve approximately 30 miles of new trails and improved trail access and parking for Hidden Falls. The Placer County board of Supervisors will soon be voting on the Hidden Falls Trail Expansion Project and your voice needs to be heard to make it happen. Without your voice, it may not happen.
Approval of the plan for the trails is vital to families, hikers, runners, equestrians, and bikers and will improve the health of trail users, reduce parking issues, and reduce impact on the most used trails. Expanding the Hidden Falls trail network will be a priceless asset to Placer County, preserving the rural landscape for our children, and our children’s children for generations to come.
This is a rare opportunity for all of us, please take a few minutes to comment. The comments can be as simple as voicing your support and adding why it is important to you, your family, and your community. Let's make this happen!

The Hidden Falls Story
Hidden Falls Regional Park is the first park envisioned by Placer County’s Legacy program, adopted in 2000. In 2003-04, the County acquired the current 1,200 acre Hidden Falls Park, which has 30 miles of multi-use trails and one major trailhead with parking. Use of the Park has grown rapidly and trails and parking can be congested during holidays and weekends to the point that visitors have been turned away. The County and Placer Land Trust have collaborated to acquire over 2,500 acres of additional land and easements to protect oak woodlands and rangelands. The Hidden Falls Trails Expansion Project will also add three new trailheads and approximately 30 miles of trails to help spread out trail enthusiasts throughout the park.
