The Trail Companion
Trail Construction and Maintenance
Ridge Trail, Sanborn-Skyline County
We expect to begin work this summer on a new section
of the Bay Area Ridge Trail in Sanborn Skyline County
Park (Santa Clara County). We will initially survey
the portion between the current end of the Skyline
Trail two miles south of Summit Rock and the Lake
Ranch area. Construction will likely take place
during spring 2001.
We'll join forces again with Bay Area Action's
Arastradero Preserve Stewardship Project for
California Trail Days/Earth Day 2000 and also for
National Trails Day. We expect to reroute a portion
of the Acorn Trail near the Corte Madera Trail.
Thanks to a grant from the California State Parks
Foundation, we will enjoy new additions to our tool
stocks, including several new loppers, mattocks and
Cloverdale Ranch (POST)
Planning is underway for a weekend trail build on
the Peninsula Open Space Trust's Cloverdale Ranch.
Cloverdale Ranch, located on the coast near
Año Nuevo, south of Pescadero, is POST's first
land management project. Much of the several-hundred
acre ranch will remain in agricultural production or
will otherwise remain closed to public access, but
large sections will be transferred to the State of
California for addition to Butano State Park and
other areas will have limited public access,
including a 0.8 mile trail near Pigeon Point
Lighthouse. Although the project is still in the
early stages, we're hoping to stage an event in early
fall to build this coastside trail, with overnight
accommodations at the Pigeon Point Hostel, Butano
State Park, or on Cloverdale Ranch itself. More
details on this exciting opportunity will be
available as plans are settled.
