Upcoming Ridge Trail Segment Featured on OpenRoad

Aug 16th, 2023

The Ridge Trail was featured on Episode 89 of OpenRoad with Doug McConnell, Sunday August 13, 2023.

The show features efforts of the Ridge Trail and our partners to create trails that promote access and inclusion with a sneak peak of the beautiful new Patwino Worrtla Kodoi Dihi Open Space Park and the All People’s Trail. Three other trails that promote access are also highlighted: new trail at Máyyan 'Ooyákma – Coyote Ridge, the summit of Mt Umunhum, and the Penitencia Creek Trail.

Doug also relates how important nature has been as a healing agent all of his life, and how it is sustaining him now – as he’s been on hiatus and is on the road to recovery.

“I’ve never been more grateful for the preservation of these healing places than I am right now. We treasure the work the Ridge Trail, its team, and many partners do every day to enrich our lives. You have enriched mine in many ways over many years, and I look forward to more adventures together in the years ahead.”
