Past, Present and Future on the Bay Area Ridge Trail
Friday | November 13, 2020 | 8:00 am — 5:00 pm
Over 30 years after its inception, the Bay Area Ridge Trail now has over 380 miles open to the public and ready to explore.
Join Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST) and the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council for a discussion of the history and future of our region’s most ambitious trail network. We will hear from Elizabeth Byers, a founder of the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council and author of Bay Area Ridge Trail: The Official Guide for Hikers, Mountain Bikers and Equestrians. Elizabeth will talk about the beginnings of the Ridge Trail Council, give a broad overview of the trail system, and share some of her favorite spots along the way.
We’ll also be joined by Liz Westbrook, Trail Program Director for the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council and former POST staffer. Liz will share about recent and current projects to expand the trail, in collaboration with POST and other regional partners.
POST Stewardship Project Manager Taylor Jang will also be joining the discussion. Taylor works as part of the team managing POST’s involvement in Ridge Trail projects.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about how to enjoy – as well as support – one of the Bay Area’s most iconic trail projects.
