Trails Clean-Up Day

The California Coastal Cleanup Day (CCD) is back! The San Elijo Hills trails system is a designated California Coastal Clean-up Day (CCD) area, and we need volunteers!

The trail system within San Elijo Hills is such a beloved feature of our community! Please join us on Saturday, April 21st from 9:00AM-12:00PM to help clean up the trails! Volunteers will meet in the Town Square (by the fountain) of San Elijo Hills at 9:00AM. Walk-ups are welcome but pre-registration helps us with site logistics, so if you know for sure you want to help, please register online in advance. To register beginning April 1st, simply go to and then look for San Marcos – San Elijo Trails under the Cleanup Sites link. Special Instructions: All volunteers should wear comfortable closed toed shoes and sun protection. You can help reduce waste by bringing your own reusable water bottle, and gardening or work gloves. Note: every participant in CCD needs to sign a waiver; anyone under the age of 18 needs a parent or guardian signature to participate! Students are eligible for community service hours, and prizes will be given out for the most trash collected!

Together we can all make a difference!

City of San Marcos-Trails Day POSTPONED

Due to forecasted rain, San Marcos Trails Day originally scheduled for Saturday, March 3, has been postponed to coincide with National Trails Day on Saturday, June 2. Hike participation is free and will begin at 9 am; hikers can start signing in at 8 am. Hikers, kids bike ride and walkers will meet at Lakeview Park/Discovery Lake, 650 Foxhall Drive. Equestrian riders will meet at the Ridgeline Trailhead, 102 San Elijo Road. The staging area will also feature food and giveaways. “Trails day is a celebration of the outdoors and in San Marcos we have something for everyone,” said Community Services Director Buck Martin. “With more than 63 miles of trail connecting to the entire region, San Marcos offers an extensive trail network for residents to discover.” An easy two-mile hike will visit Discovery Lake and the Discovery Creek trails. A more challenging seven-mile hike will explore the trails that lead to Double Peak Park. Mountain biking enthusiasts are encouraged to bring bikes and enjoy the ride.  “Adventures are meant to be shared and this event is a great opportunity to meet new people in your community and share a fun experience on a local trail,” said Martin.   An adult must accompany all minors. Sturdy walking shoes are recommended; bring water, sunscreen and trail snacks. Dogs must be on a maximum 6-foot leash at all times. The hike is subject to cancellation in the event of rain.  Event participants are encouraged to share your hiking moments on Instagram by tagging the city with @sanmarcoscity and using the hashtag #DiscoverSanMarcos.  For more information on hikes or the city’s trails, please visit or call (760) 744-9000, ext. 3535.
