SMHS Rattler Ridge Trail: New Programs and Construction Update
|April 2013 Trail Work Day at Rattler Ridge|
Greetings from San Marcos High School and its Rattler Ridge Trail! This trail began with the hardwork and dedication of SMHS students and faculty almost 4 years ago. It continues to serve as an outdoor classroom and an integral part of the Outdoor Adventure Education course. SMGA was, and continues to be, an important partner in the endeavor, providing trail tool support, trail work training, and volunteers. Despite the upcoming construction for the new SMHS facilities, we are happy to report that much of trail will remain intact and that many of the larger trees will be spared. We will have re-routes to work on, but we look forward to the opportunity to improve the trail experience. And, just in time!
This coming spring the SMHS Mountain Bike Team takes to the trails on our campus and in the greenspaces of San Marcos in preparation to compete in five races throughout Texas. Members of the team will learn not only proper mountain bike riding techniques but also trail etiquette and environmental stewardship. We want to thank you for providing trails in the San Marcos natural areas for the students to practice on and for your continued support.
