Garin/Dry Creek Pioneer Regional Parks

Ridge Trail - Garin Regional Park to Niles Canyon


The Bay Area Ridge Trail – Garin Regional Park to Niles Canyon proposes to open a segment of the Bay Area Ridge Trail (Ridge Trail) to the public between Garin Regional Park and Vallejo Mill Historic Park at the mouth of Niles Canyon in Fremont. The Ridge Trail is a planned 550-mile natural surface, multi-use, nonmotorized trail along the ridgelines surrounding the San Francisco Bay. Currently, approximately 375 miles of the trail are complete and open to trail users. The proposed project would close a 5-mile gap within an easement over private property, creating a contiguous stretch of trail from Vallejo Mill Historic Park to Kennedy Grove in El Sobrante; a distance of over 40 miles. The project will construct approximately 3.9 miles of new multi-use recreational trail and will utilize 1.1 miles of existing ranch roads.
