Mike Lynch briefs Equestrians on state of Auburn State Recreation Area

Mike Lynch, Superintendent of Auburn State Recreation Area, met with El Dorado Equestrian Trails Foundation members and guests October 7th to provide insight into the Park’s challenges in keeping its gates open.  It appears Park funding is solid during the current fiscal year, but uncertain afterwards.  The existing staff of field rangers is roughly half what it was 30 years ago; a clear example. 

During the briefing, Mike noted the irony of our recent opening of another trail along the South Fork of the American River, extending trails within Cronan Ranch, while struggling along the North and Middle Fork to remain open to the public.
