Off-Road News Tenderfoot Trail Updates
Following reports of deteriorating trail conditions, MCBC joined forces with students and parents from the Tam High Mountain Biking Team to give some much needed love to the Tenderfoot Trail. Over the course of two trail days we replaced rotting wood that is shoring up the fragile trail edge, and cut back vegetation to improve sightlines and trimmed branches that were snagging helmets and hydration packs. Thanks to everyone who came out to help! The many trail users that passed by gave us praise and high fives!
We are working with the City of Mill Valley and the nonprofit Steps, Lanes, & Paths to figure out a solution for the rooted tree section near the top of the trail. While the roots will remain untouched, we are looking at options to create a sustainable b-line around the outside of the tree. We hope to do this work later this year with volunteers.
SAFETY ON EDGEWOOD AVENUE
Edgewood Avenue is the narrow winding road that connects Tenderfoot with the Mountain Home Inn and Pipeline Trail. We’ve received reports of near misses with cars on the road, as well as cyclists passing neighborhood children and dogs at high speed. Please be respectful of the homeowners on Edgewood Avenue by riding safely and slowing down around blind turns. It might save you from a trip to the ER!
