Free Hikes and Programs


Monthly Naturalist Led Hikes

Once a month, Auburn State Recreation Area's  volunteer organization, the Canyon Keepers, lead hikes on the park's various trails. The hikes are free, and led by park docents who are experienced naturalists. These hikes are generally geared towards adults. If you want to explore the Auburn SRA's trails, check out the Canyon Keeper's hike calendar. For child friendly hikes, see our Family Hikes schedule.

Family Hikes

In the spring and fall, our rangers and docents lead family friendly hikes in different areas of the park. These hikes are usually short, and the terrain is fairly unchallenging. The hikes focus on flora, fauna, or the history of the canyon and usually last about an hour. See our schedule of Family Hikes for more information.

Junior Ranger Program at Upper Lake Clementine 2016

Every Saturday, Sunday, from July 9th through September 4th and Labor Day at 3PM Join Auburn SRA staff and Canyon Keeper Volunteers for Junior Ranger activities on the beach of Upper Lake Clementine. Our Junior Rangers program is for kids ages 4-12 only, but we ask that a parent or guardian remain on site. Natural and cultural history topics will vary weekly. This activity is FREE, however there is a $10 day use fee to park at the lake.

Contact the Park Interpretive Specialist at (530)745-2202 for questions. Schedule is subject to change without notice due to weather and/or volunteer availability.
