The Trail Companion
Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve
We'll return to
Jasper Ridge on Nov. 13 to move a portion of the
Mapache Trail out of Corte Madera Creek. When we
completed work on the trail in 1996, the creek
channel was about 150 feet away, but El Nino storms
brought down so much silt that the stream shifted and
eroded part of the trail. We'll reroute the section
uphill, well out of the creek. We'll also clear brush
on nearby trails.
We're working with
Bay Area Action's Arastradero Preserve Stewardship
Project to map the trails, with an eye toward problem
sections, possible improvements and an all-weather
backbone of trails.
If you would like to
