Cabot Arena Footing Replacement (Association Reserve Project)

The Cabot Arena will be closed Monday through Wednesday next week for replacement of 125 tons of sand footing.  This Association Arena, funded by Association assessments, is located on Cabot Valencia Trail and is available for use by all Nellie Gail Ranch homeowners, guests, and private boarders.  Private boarders and guests are required to complete a waiver which they can do by scanning this QR code which is also on the trail signs and arena signage.  The arena will be re-opened in time for the 4th of July holiday weekend.  Enjoy!!

 

Equestrian Center Arena Footing Replacement (Equestrian Center Reserve Project)

Last week we completed work to supplement the Upper Arena with 53 tons of sand and fiber footing and this week we are completing work at the Middle Arena with 78 tons total.  New footing is added every 2-3 years to keep it at appropriate depth. This is an Equestrian Center reserve project.  Association assessments do not contribute to the Equestrian Center funding as Equestrian Center boarding and training fees offset costs associated with the Equestrian Center.  Did you know that if you rent your personal stalls to private party boarders they can utilize the Equestrian Center amenities via a $45 per month membership.  Contact Charee Jones at chareej@nelliegailranch.org or 949-831-5041 if interested.

Meter Enclosure Pedestal Replacement (Association Reserve Project):

We have recently completed replacement throughout the community of ten corroded steel electric meter pedestals and six irrigation controller enclosures. Since the six irrigation controller enclosures were adjacent to electric meters we took the opportunity to combine the two enclosures into one stainless steel dual enclosure thus eliminating a total of six enclosures from the streetscape. This is an example of an approach to projects as we look for ways to improve community aesthetics and make better use of association reserve funds.

Trail Use By Sports Camp

Nellie Gail Ranch hosts a youth summer camp at Hidden Trail Park run by Evolution Sports Academy. A component of the camp activities is a brief hike on the trail from Hidden Trail Park to the Association Clubhouse for lunch and pool activities. After lunch, they hike back to Hidden Trail Park for the remainder of their camp activities that include Volleyball, Soccer, Basketball and more. The above map highlights the trails on which youth may be present Monday through Friday at 11:30 am to 12 noon & 1:30 pm to 2:00 pm. The camp runs weekdays through August 23rd. While caution is always appropriate on the Nellie Gail Ranch trail system, we wanted to highlight this trail and these times for your extra attention.

Trail Maintenance Update – Oso Trail South / Oso Marsh Pass 

Although these trails are included on the Nellie Gail Ranch trail map, homeowners may be surprised to know these are in fact City maintained. Oso Marsh Pass, the higher trail closest to the homes is considered an informal trail while the lower Oso Trail South is a recognized trail. Both are maintained as seasonal trails with the City clearing weeds annually at the end of Spring. Work was completed over the past two weeks and are now assessable for equestrians who like to use this route to get to Moulton Park or access the County trail system.

Nellie Gail Ranch Trail Map / Guest Waiver

The following link is to the map of Nellie Gail Ranch Trails. You may report any maintenance concerns to Management at admin@nelliegailranch.org or by text with photo to 949-933-8546. Please enjoy your equestrian and hiking adventures. 
 
And remember, please have guests scan the QR code here or on trail signs to complete the waiver required for guest use. The form may be completed quickly at the trailhead and once completed, your guest is approved for use of the trail or arena. Waivers for guest use of trails and arenas protect both the homeowner and the Association by providing appropriate notice to guests of the inherent risk associated with equine and/or hiking activities. Each guest only needs to complete the waiver once, it is not required each time they visit.
 
When using trails, be aware of wildlife. Coyotes are active, and there have been reports of snake sightings. Be observant and keep your children, pets, horses, and selves safe!!!
