Off-Road Help Expand Access – Two Trail Days in February

We’re excited to kick-off 2019 with ambitious trail stewardship plans for the year, starting with two events in February that will help open five miles of new trails to bikes in 2019 and 2020. If you’ve never been out for a trail day before, we guarantee you’ll have a great time getting dirty for a good cause!

eagle rim trail, mt. Burdell open space preserve

saturday, february 9, 8:30 AM – 3:00 PM | SAN ANDREAS DRIVE GATE

Join us in a volunteer work day to make trail improvements to Eagle Rim Trail, located along the Mt. Burdell ridgeline and featuring fantastic views of Novato and the Bay Area.

The volunteer workday and the trail improvements will lead to the official adoption and hiking/cycling designation of the trail. Trail work is very strenuous and involves bending, kneeling, and hiking on steep and uneven terrain. It is recommended for older teens and adults with a moderate to high level of fitness. Dress in layers, wear sturdy shoes, and bring water. Please bring gloves if you have them. Snacks, lunch, and extra water will be provided.

In the event of heavy rain and/or high winds call (415) 473-3778 to find out about event status.


Bill’s Trail, Samuel p. Taylor state park

saturday, february 16, 8:30 am – 1:00 pm | devil’s gulch campground

Help put the finishing touches on Bill’s Trail Saturday, February 16! Bill’s Trail is an amazing 4-mile trail connecting Devil’s Gulch with the top of Mt. Barnaby at Samuel P. Taylor State Park. 

Work is almost finished, but we need volunteers to push construction over the top. We will be helping with tread work, small construction projects, and other tasks. All are welcome. Wear long pants, a long sleeved shirt, and durable shoes (preferably boots with toe support). If you have gloves and eye wear, bring them. Tools, snacks, and lunch will be provided–and raffle prizes will be given out!
