Ridge Trail Day 2018 Success!

Nov 08th, 2018
Volunteers move branches on Ridge Trail day

Success! The 11th annual Ridge Trail Day rallied over 400 trail volunteers at 13 sites around the Bay. You helped build, repair, and improve trail for everyone.

See what these volunteers had to say about Ridge Trail Day 2018.

With the support of our volunteers we were able to prepare the trails for winter, and spread our vision of a 550+ mile loop around the Bay. Here are some accomplishments across all nine Bay Area counties from Ridge Trail Day 2018:

  • Prepared 12 miles of trail for winter by creating drainage features to prevent erosion
  • Planted 27 native plants to encourage habitat growth in Golden Gate Park
  • Removed more than 8 truckloads of invasive species and trash to create safe passageways and encourage native species growth
  • Realigned 0.25 miles of trail in Napa and San Francisco and removed hazardous boulders to make it safer for users of all types

Now the trails are all pretty and waiting for you to enjoy them on Black Friday (November, 23). Instead of going indoors on that shopping-crazed day, head outside with REI Co-op as they close their doors for the day to enjoy the fresh air.

Please view our photo gallery to see highlights of the Ridge Trail Day activities. We will be adding more photos from our many partners in the days to come. If you are one of die-hard Ridge Trail Day fans and want to see ALL the photos (and maybe add some of your own!) you can access them on this Google drive folder.

Thank you!
