Guided Rides On Your Horse: Lynch Canyon & Rockville Trails Preserve

Solano Land Trust's equestrian docents are available to lead you and your horse on two of Solano Land Trust's properties: Lynch Canyon and Rockville Trails Preserve. See the registration information below to make an appointment.

Lynch Canyon is open to the public Fridays through Mondays and offers great riding opportunities through peaceful grasslands accented with groves of buckeyes and live oaks, along with spectacular views of the Bay Area, Delta, Wine Country, and the Sierra Nevada from the inspiring 900 ft. ridgetops. Rockville Trails Preserve is not yet open to the public, but our equestrian docents are eager to show you this stunning property filled with groves of blue and live oaks, wildflowers and wildlife as you ride atop hills above Suisun Valley. We look forward to sharing one or both of these great natural parks with you!

COST: Free!

WHAT TO BE PREPARED FOR: (1) These tours are for experienced trail riders with fit horses who are both trail and road trained. For rides at Rockville Trails Preserve, we do walk along Rockville Rd. for a short time before entering the property. (2) The terrain at Lynch Canyon varies and the terrain at Rockville Trails Preserve is difficult. Expect rough, rocky, uneven ground, and rugged, steep, and slippery hills that may be full of sticky seeds and thorny plants. Please discuss this with Mindi or Christine when you register to be sure this is appropriate for you and your horse. (3) Both preserves are working ranches where free-range cattle roam as they please. (4) At Rockville Trails Preserve and at Lynch Canyon when otherwise closed, visitors must be accompanied by a docent at all times and the entry and exit gate will be locked except for the start and end times of the ride. (5) There is no drinking water for people at either preserve. There is water for cattle and horses at both preserves. (6) There is no bathroom at Rockville Trails Preserve. There is one outhouse at Lynch Canyon. (7) Dogs are not allowed at either property, in order to protect wildlife, cattle, horses and rare plants. (8) Take only pictures, leave only hoof and footprints. (9) Maintain a safe distance from cattle and wildlife, and be aware that these are tick, mountain lion, and poison oak country. Rockville Trails Preserve is also rattlesnake and wild pig country.

Baby Grebe Feeding

This week we've got a nice surprise. Our photo of the week is a very young Grebe. We are still not sure if it's a Clark's or Western, but its definitely a precious Grebe.

It was rescued in Clearlake, CA and now in care at our San Francisco Wildlife Center. This is very unusual species to be caring for at this age. Our clinics usually see a majority of adult Grebes that are sick or injured.
