The Trail Companion
Trail Construction and Maintenance
Slate Creek Trail, Portola Redwoods State
We're planning the second of two days of trail
maintenance projects in Portola Redwoods SP, with
camping available on the preceding night. On August
19, Community Impact will join us
for a day of repair on the Slate Creek Trail as we
clean up debris, repair pig damage, rehabilitate
retaining walls and improve drainage.
Entrance and camping
will be free for participants, but reservations with
the Trail Center four days before the event will be
required for camping. If you are interested in
working on this project, please register with Community Impact.
Skyline Trail (Bay Area Ridge Trail),
Sanborn-Skyline County Park
Join us on September 23 for a day of maintenance
on the south end of the Skyline Trail, between the
Sanborn Trail junction and Sunnyvale Mountain Picnic
Area in Sanborn-Skyline County Park.
We'll be cutting back brush, improving trail tread
and repair erosion damage. Meet at Sunnyvale Mountain
parking on Skyline Boulevard (Hwy 35) (approx. 7
miles south of Hwy 9 junction). If we finish early,
we'll take an optional hike on our new Castle Rock
Trail reroute at Castle Rock State Park.
Wilbur's Watch Trail, Cloverdale Coastal
Peninsula Open Space Trust
expects to receive final approval for the Wilbur's
Watch Trail and small trailhead parking lot in the Cloverdale Coastal Ranch by
early October. The 3/4 mile trail will climb a
coastal terrace overlooking Pigeon Point from the lot
located just off Hwy 1, and will end at a vista point
with a grand view of the point and the northern Santa
Cruz coastline. POST, Community Impact and the Trail
Center will construct the trail on October 21 or
November 4 (date to be determined), with camping or
other accommodations for the preceding night provided
