New Trail Map now available

We have now created a new trail map that provides a more complete view of Pleasant Valley Conservancy. This map is available in a dispenser at the trail entrance. The map is similar to the Management Map that can be downloaded from our web site, with a few updates. The main advantage of the new trail map is that it can be picked up at the Conservancy entrance and carried along on a hike. If you don't want to keep it, you can return it to the dispenser when you are finished hiking.

It has been printed on high quality paper (not a newsprint version!) and can be useful when studying the flora and fauna.

Lots of people don't seem to need a trail map, and enjoy wandering. However, we have had requests for a map, and I finally found time to put this together.

Another new feature is a bicycle rack at the Conservancy entrance, so that bikers can make a visit. Pleasant Valley Road and the other roads in these hills are favorites for road bikers, and it seemed to me that bikers might like to walk for an hour or two during a day's bike visit. I used to be a road biker in my younger years and know how enjoyable a bike tour can be.
