Spring 2000

Upcoming Events

Trail Construction and Maintenance

Ridge Trail, Sanborn-Skyline County Park

We anticipate surveying the portion between the current end of the Skyline Trail two miles south of Summit Rock and the Lake Ranch area in early summer. If the route is approved, construction could begin in spring 2001.

Arastradero Preserve

Any Mountain will sponsor both our California Trail Days/Earth Day 2000 and National Trails Day events as we complete the Acorn Trail reroute. See the complete story in this issue.

Portola Redwoods State Park

A campout at Portola will kick off a day of repair on the Slate Creek Trail on August 19th. Community Impact will join us to clean up debris, repair pig damage, rehabilitate retaining walls and improve drainage. Entrance and camping will be free for participants, but reservations will be required for camping.

If you would like to get involved with any of our projects, e-mail us or call (650) 968-7065.
