The January & February 2018 Quail Hollow Ranch Activity Brochure is now available HERE!

If you've been up to Quail Hollow Ranch recently, you may have noticed a “proposed development” sign at the park entry. The Parks Department is working on expanding the Quail Hollow trail network to include the adjacent Pace Property. The project is currently under review by the County Planning Department for a development permit, which will include the trails, restoration activities, and educational signage. The project will include constructing approximately three new miles of hiking trails, providing access to new parts of the park!
