After months of significant recovery efforts by our stewardship team and volunteers, Marks Ranch in Salinas is open for hiking! Over a year ago, the ranch served as incident command center during the River Fire while several acres burned on the property. When the fire was finally contained, water infrastructure, roads, and trails sustained severe damage.
Through the generous support of our donors, partners, and funders and lots of hard work caring for this land, you can now make reservations here! We hope you are able to get out this fall to enjoy all that this beautiful ranch has to offer: miles of trails, oak woodlands, rare expanses of native grasses, and breathtaking views just to name a few!
