Butterfield Trails is hosting a clean-up event for the Fenceline Trail up on the Santa Rosa Plateau on Saturday, March 2nd in conjunction with the Riverside County Parks and Open-Space District’s Adopt-A-Trail program.
We are looking for teens and adults to volunteer to help with weeding, some cautious, ranger supervised pruning, filling in holes and smoothing out the trail surface to keep this heavily used trail safe and enjoyable for the
Fenceline is a true multi-use trail utilized by hikers, horseback riders, and bikers with non-motorized equipment. Our local high school cross-country teams use it for training, and families and private groups are attracted to the trail for exercise and enjoying the beautiful natural environment.
Please come out and help us with the Spring maintenance day event. The County will supply tools and trash bag pick-ups, and Butterfield will provide water, snacks, gloves and supervision out on the trail.

We will meet on the Santa Rosa Plateau in the Fenceline Trailhead parking lot. Travel West on Clinton Keith passing the SRP Visitors’ Center, go about 1.5 to 2.0 miles further and turn into the large parking lot on your left. Our large Butterfield Trails Banners will be on the fence. And, we will have plenty of signs out on the side of the road!!!!
Come on out and enjoy the trail and the good company of other volunteers while giving us a hand with the weeds, holes and ruts that Mother Nature and heavy trail use has produced.
