Help restore the Thomas Fire damaged Franklin Trail
Trail run proceeds benefit the Thomas Fire Trail Fund managed by Los Padres Forest Association, The C.R.E.W., Santa Barbara Mountain Bike Trail Volunteers, and the Santa Barbara County Trails Council. The Trails Council, along with community partners and supporters, is currently repairing the Thomas Fire damaged single track trail through the Los Padres National Forest to the crest of the Santa Ynez Mountains. The trail segment on the north side of the Santa Ynez Mountains will be repaired next.
The Santa Barbara County Trails Council’s mission is to protect public trail access, build and maintain safe and sustainable trails, and promote public engagement in land stewardship and trail use for all types of outdoor recreation.
This trail run is held under a special use permit and in partnership with the Los Padres National Forest.
