Caperton Trail Permits for Runs and Walks
Notice to all groups and organizations who use the trails for walk, bike and run events. BOPARC facilitates trail walks and runs for various organizations and does so by scheduling such events on our master calendar in order to avoid duplication of planned routes and organize our own maintenance staff for litter sweep and post event inspection. We ask that groups clean up after themselves and that organizers keep us informed of planned events, routes, schedule changes and planned participation numbers.
Due to the popularity of the trails, trail heads and parks surrounding the trails
for purposes of such events, it is necessary for groups hosting larger events
(over 50 people) on and along the trails to apply for a permit to adjoining BOPARC facilities when applicable. Such facilities and trail areas include (but may not be limited to): Marilla Park, White Park, Hazel Ruby McQuain Park and Amphitheatre. The cost of the permit will be based on the average cost of the facility affected by the trail use.
For instance, should a group be utilizing the trail area at Hazel Ruby McQuain Park for race start and end, the Amphitheatre rental cost would serve to cover the
permit for the time period of the race. The permit charge is necessary for
larger events because the rental space available to the public is not available
during such events due to the feasibility of a private rental being conducted
while a large scale race, charity walk or other such event is taking place.

planning your event in order to determine applicable permit pricing.
