Ridge to Bridge

April, 2023. Our signature hike, bike, and horseback ride event through the Marin Headlands is over for 2022, but we’ll be back in spring 2023 for more trail fun to be had along this iconic Ridge Trail section.

Ridge Trail Day

November 5th, 2022

Ridge Trail Service Day is our largest trail project. We partner with local land managers to host a myriad of volunteer trail work parties around the Bay Area to build and improve sections of the Ridge Trail. Sign up here!


East Bay Hills Benefit Campout

September, 2023. Join us for the East Bay Hills Trails Benefit hike and ride. A hiking or horse back riding overnight adventure that takes you through many of the great East bay trails. Sign up for one or multiple nights of camping, mingling, and experiencing the trails!


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.
