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.
