The park is also home to ducks, horses, geese, pigs, cows, chickens and even llamas! If hiking is your thing, the Park Loop trail makes a scenic 3-mile trek around the entire perimeter of Gibson Ranch Park, or you can hike along the 2-mile Dry Creek trail.
What is there to eat?
El Fira will have their wood-fired oven out at this race! Here's the menu:
Sausage Festivus: Fire-Roasted Beer-Bathed Bratwurst, with Housemade Red Cabbage Kraut, and Special Dijonnaise Sauce... plus Caramelized Onions.
Will there be beer?
Why yes... yes there will! Enjoy fresh, local, craft beer from Yolo Brewing Company while supporting the Folsom Auburn Trail Rider Action Coalition (FATRAC). Beers are $5, or $4 if you bring your own cup!
