The South Fork Merced River Trail Collaborative, a standing committee of UMRWC, has drafted a plan to improve access to the South Fork Trail. The trail extends 22 miles from Savage's Trading Post on Highway 140 to Highway 41 in Yosemite National Park. In the springtime, it attracts many visitors with its stretches of beautiful fiery orange poppies.
The Trail Collaborative is comprised of individuals with affiliations to various local interests and community groups, including Merced River Conservation Committee, Bureau of Land Management, UC Merced, Sierra Foothill Conservancy, and more. The Collaborative wants to ensure that the historic trail, built in the early 1900s by the US Calvary, is maintained and is accessible to the public.
If you are interested in working on the trail or obtaining a draft of the Collaborative's plan, contact Will Fassett at firstname.lastname@example.org
UMRWC has been committed to the protection and preservation of the Upper Merced River Watershed since its founding in 2001.
