Dear SURF members:
We have exciting news! We are very proud to announce that SURF has been approached by the Cleveland National Forest to participate in a public/private partnership with the USFS to improve the trail network in the Laguna mountains, including the creation of miles of new trails in the Sunrise Highway corridor. In addition to building new trails, a number of other trails will be improved including moving several trails into better trail corridors to allow for better preservation of the tread and to minimize impact on the surrounding mountains. While SURF, through Trail Fit and the SURF volunteers who work with Trail Fit, already works hard to maintain the current trails we all know and love, there are needs for major upgrades to these trails that will provide convenient connectors between major trails, will encourage mountain bikers to use trails with jumps and features, thereby minimizing conflicts between trail runners and mountain bikers, and will preserve these trails from erosion and overuse, allowing them to be enjoyed by all for years to come.
San Diego Ultra Running Friends supports our diverse running and trail community, providing our members with happy, healthy opportunities to run, race, volunteer, and socialize. We work to create an inclusive environment to cultivate friendships, provide encouragement, and celebrate every runner. We also encourage members to maintain local running and hiking trails for public benefit to foster environmental awareness in parks and national forests.
