Ridge to Bridge

April 2021. This year’s Ridge to Bridge event is putting a twist on an old favorite. 2021’s hike, bike and ride event has more trails, more prizes and more swag than ever before. Choose your Own Adventure! There are 4 Ridge Trail routes of varying distances in 4 regions to pick from – complete as many as you’d like! Learn more.

Ridge Trail Day

November 2021. Ridge Trail Day is the Ridge Trail Council’s largest trail project. We partner with REI Co-op and local land managers to host a myriad of volunteer trail work parties to build and improve sections of the Ridge Trail. This year we’re planning a COVID-friendly twist on the event with a DIY Trail Project option.


East Bay Hills Hike and Equestrian Ride

TBD 2021. See the East Bay in a new way on this fully supported 5-day hike/6-Day equestrian ride. Hikers and riders are mostly on different trails during the day, while sharing campsites, meals, stories & camaraderie, and enjoying entertainment each evening.


Pitch-in! Volunteers help fulfill the Council's vision of a long-distance trail in the Bay Area. Build or improve the Ridge Trail near you.
