More than 150 Rocklin residents kicked off their Labor Day weekend on Aug. 30 by being part of the first group to officially walk the newly opened West Trails at the Sunset Whitney Recreation Area.

The West Trails offer 2.7 miles of paths, ranging from the parking lot and main trail access at 4201 Midas Avenue to secondary trail access points at Whitney Blvd. and at Sunset Blvd.

The special opening ceremony included remarks from Rocklin City leaders and volunteers, a ribbon cutting and the inaugural walk.

On April 21st, over 200 local youth arrived bright and early wielding shovels, rakes and smiles – ready to plant over 120 trees, 200 plants and paint 2 restroom facilities. The trees planted serve to replace those dead/hazardous trees which have been removed over the past several months.


Guiding Principles

The City Council has tasked the Parks, Recreation and Arts Commission with soliciting ideas and feedback from the community regarding the Sunset Whitney Recreation Area.  This includes potential uses, amenities, priorities, funding sources and partnerships.
