Wild & Scenic Trail Mile Marker Installation Along Over 35 Miles

Share with Your People

We have begun to install Mile Marker posts throughout the South Yuba Canyon. On Wednesday, February 28th, SYRCL staff worked with California State Parks to install trail mile markers at Bridgeport State Park and the trails near 49 crossing.

There is still a lot of work to be done and we need your help.

Join us for our Wild & Scenic Trails Mile Marker Installation Days!

Are you passionate about hiking and ensuring the safety of outdoor enthusiasts? We are seeking dedicated volunteers to assist with installing new signage along trails in the South Yuba River Wild & Scenic corridor. This project aims to enhance visitor safety, improve wayfinding capabilities, and reduce emergency response times in our community.

As a volunteer, you’ll be responsible for:

  • Carrying your personal hiking gear, water, food, and sign installation equipment provided by SYRCL. 
  • Hiking anywhere from 3 to 10 miles, encountering some elevation gain along the way. 
  • Supporting the installation of wayfinding signage along the route.


  • Must be able to comfortably life at least 30lbs and hike the required distance.

If you are to sign-up, you’ll meet SYRCL staff at our office (313 Railroad Ave, Nevada City, 95959) on the selected date and time, where we’ll organize carpooling to the project site. Then, get ready to explore the stunning South Yuba River Canyon while contributing to a vital community project. (Please note that the area is home to Poison Oak and various tick species, so come prepared to encounter these natural elements).

Prior to the event, Rose Ledford, SYRCL’s Science and Education Project Manager, will provide specific information regarding the distance and elevation gain required for the section we’ll be working on. 

This project, funded by the County of Nevada’s American Rescue Plan allocation for Community & Economic Resiliency, aims to install signage along over 35 miles of trails, promoting safety and enjoyment for all visitors.

For more information or specific inquiries, please contact Rose Ledford at Rose@yubariver.org. Your contribution will make a meaningful difference in our community’s outdoor experiences!
