The Ridge Trail has Reached 400 Miles!
The Ridge Trail was built inch by inch AND member by member. Join us on the journey ahead to close the final gaps in Ridge Trail and make your 400-mile gift today!
EL SERENO PRESERVE
Our most recent addition to the Ridge Trail and the longest (3.5 miles) we dedicated in 2021, this sunny Ridge Trail segment winds through the preserve above Los Gatos, offering beautiful sweeping views of the Diablo Range and Lexington Reservoir.
COYOTE CREEK TRAIL
Another exciting, recent addition to the Ridge Trail, the Coyote Creek Trail grew by 1.7 miles in late 2021. The wide paved trail travels a nearly level course through a mix of shady riparian cover, parks, and open fields in the heart of San José, and is an excellent bike ride.
GREEN VALLEY ROAD
In March a small (0.1 mile) but significant gap in the Ridge Trail closed at Green Valley Rd in Fairfield. A new crosswalk on this wide road now allows for pedestrians and cyclists to safely cross and continue their way to the scenic Rockville Hills Regional Park.
These projects are in the works and we're hopeful these trails will be part of the Ridge Trail soon!
- Pacific Union College to Moore Creek Park, "Dan's Wild Ride" (Napa County) - 3.7 miles
- Los Alamitos Creek to Almaden Quicksilver County Park (Santa Clara County) - 0.7 miles
These projects are just on the horizon, with groundbreakings expected to happen in 2022.
- Garin Regional Park to Niles Canyon (Alameda County) - 7 miles
- Southern Skyline Ridge Trail Extension (San Mateo County) - 6.7 miles
Together, we’ve built the momentum needed to connect the last 150 miles!
Since 1989, we’ve worked to fund, build, and dedicate over 400 miles of Ridge Trail. It took the efforts of countless volunteers, donors, partners and staff to get to this point. We want you to fall in love with this bold vision just like we have, and join us in connecting the last 150 miles.
Take action today by making a 400-mile gift and becoming a Ridge Trail Member. Your donation will support our work, each and every day, to build and connect the trail, and to make the Ridge Trail more accessible to more people around the Bay Area.
