The Bay Area's most gorgeous hike and ride - 
on the Ridge Trail through Marin and across the Golden Gate.

Save the Date: April 22, 2017

Our signature fully-supported event is great fun and raises money to help open more miles of Ridge Trail! 

ABOUT RIDGE TO BRIDGE:

Hikers, runners, bikers and equestrians can all join the fun, with moderate to challenging options. Those on foot and wheels will be shuttled from the Presidio Main Post in San Francisco across the iconic Golden Gate Gate Bridge to their trailhead, and take a one-way trip back to the Presidio. Those on horses ride a gorgeous loop in Marin. Everyone enjoys tasty snacks and drinks at staffed rest stops and gathers for a catered trail-side lunch!
