Roseville’s trail network travels through open space areas which are a habitat for wildlife. While rare, there is the possibility of encountering mountain lions and other wild animals. Recently there have been mountain lion sightings reported along the Miner's Ravine/False Ravine Trail in the Stoneridge area. While seeing a mountain lion in an open space area is not necessarily a cause for alarm, we want to remind everyone that mountain lions, coyotes and other potentially dangerous wildlife live in our open space areas, and to take some common sense precautions.
