Bay Area Ridge Trail - San Mateo County

The Bay Area Ridge Trail ultimately will be a 500+ mile trail encircling the San Francisco Bay along the ridge tops, open to hikers, equestrians, mountain bicyclists, and outdoor enthusiasts of all types. So far over 330 miles of trail has been dedicated for use by Bay Area residents, now and forever.

Location: Skyline Trail segment at Bear Gulch Road, Woodside, California - Bay Area Ridge Trail

Directions: For this event we have been granted permission to park at the El Corte de Madera Creek trailhead parking lot, courtesy of the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District. The lot is on Highway 35, with an address of 16040 Skyline Blvd. This is south of the junction at King's Mountain road, approximately one mile south of the Caltrans Skeggs Point parking area and 2.7 miles north of the intersection of Highway 35 and Highway 84.

Parking is limited, so please carpool if you possibly can. We have been allotted 30 spaces on a first-come, first-serve basis at this popular facility.

From the lot take the Sierra Morena Trail to the Molder Trail trailhead where we will pick up our tools.

Agency: San Mateo County Parks

Supervisor: Hank Magnuski

Project Lead: Hank Magnuski

Additional Information: Participants should bring water, sunscreen, sturdy shoes and normal precautions against poison oak exposure (work gloves, long sleeved shirts and long pants). The Trail Center provides tools, training, gloves, and refreshments after the workday.

Assemble at 8:30 for assignment to crews and for the safety and tool usage talk.

We will start work at 9 am and finish by 3 pm.

Saturday, November 21, 2015 - Bay Area Ridge Trail - Skyline Trail Segment - REI Service Day - Rain Date

Activities: We will be doing a massive clean-up and widening of the Skyline Trail segment between Wunderlich Park and Huddart Park. There are long stretches of this trail segment where the tread is very narrow or where it's encroaching on the outside edge and needs to be re-centered. Some drainage problems and any brushing required will be done.

Park your car at the El Corte de Madera Creek lot and then hike to the Molder Trail trailhead using the Sierra Morena Trail. Please DO NOT walk on the highway to the assembly point. Bring your lunch, water and daypack with you.

We will have crew assignments, safety talks and pickup tools at the trailhead and then use the Molder Trail to access our worksites on the Skyline Trail.
