Liberty Gulch Trail Enters Final Construction Phase! Liberty Gulch Trail: Final Construction Phase Spring 2024

Liberty Gulch Trail Update Spring 2024

MCBC joined MMWD staff on a walk of Liberty Gulch Trail

Volunteer Day on Azalea Hill – Volunteers needed April 6, 2024

In late March, MCBC joined MMWD staff on a walk of Liberty Gulch Trail to see what work remains to open the trail to hikers, bikers, and equestrians in 2024.

While the bulk of the work has been completed, including the installation of several bridges, reroutes to avoid sensitive habitat, and decommissioning of redundant social trails, there’s still plenty to do to prepare the trail for a summer/fall opening.

Liberty Gulch Trail Update Spring 2024

Preparing the trail for a summer/fall opening.

The next trail day is scheduled for April 6th, 2024. Sign up to volunteer, 

There are several drainages and failing culverts throughout the middle section of the trail that need attention. We will need volunteers to carefully gather rock for those crossings, cut back vegetation from the trail corridor, and finish up recent bridge construction.

Please join us for the first volunteer day of the season and watch for new dates throughout the spring and summer. In addition to work on the Liberty Gulch trail, we will help with enhancements to the Azalea Hill hiking trail and perform habitat restoration work.

Saturday, April 6th is the first Mt. Tam Watershed volunteer day of the season!

Space is limited, so RSVP Today!

The best way to learn more about Azalea Hill volunteer days is to subscribe to our Watershed Team and to visit, where we list all volunteer opportunities.

Thanks, and see you on the trails!

For now, the trail is closed to all visitors. Assuming the stars align and we don’t have an extended winter, the trail could be open by this summer or fall.

This Project provides a much-needed connection and safety improvement between the “Lakes” and “Pine Mountain” areas. It will likely be the first of MCBC’s 3 Gaps Initiative projects to be completed.

Last year volunteers helped construct two bridges on what’s known as the Fishermen’s Trail, between Bullfrog Fire Road and where the old Liberty Gulch Road dives into Alpine Lake.

Sign up to volunteer for the next trail day – Saturday, April 6, 2024
