Signature annual events.

Hikes, bike rides, horseback rides, work parties, multi-day excursions—the Ridge Trail Council and its partners regularly sponsor events and outings for you to enjoy the Ridge Trail.

Ridge to Bridge

Tentative Date: April 18, 2020. The Bay Area’s most gorgeous hike and ride through Marin and across the Golden Gate. Hikers, runners, mountain bikers, and equestrians all join the fun with moderate to challenging options. Shuttles from the Presidio to trailheads allow for gorgeous one-way trips. Everyone enjoys tasty snacks and drinks at staffed rest stops and a catered trail-side lunch.

Ridge Trail Day

November 2, 2019. Ridge Trail Day is the Ridge Trail Council’s largest trail project, with hundreds of volunteers participating around the region. 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.


East Bay Hills Hike and Equestrian Ride

August 2020. 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. Choose your number of days.


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.
