The Fair Oaks Recreation & Park District is proud to present the Mississippi Bar Trail Run, an annual trail run through the wetlands, oaks and single track on the north shore of Lake Natoma. This beautiful area in Fair Oaks once mined by gold prospectors is a real gem for outdoor enthusiasts and is a great location for hikes, bird watching, horseback rides, mountain biking and, of course, trail running. This year we will be adding a 10K option for those looking for an extra challenge. We look forward to seeing you at our third annual event on June 3, 2023.
