Glen Canyon TRAILS Improvement Project Over Halfway Complete

New Creek Crossing

A majority of trail improvements on the eastern slope of the Canyon are complete, and the contractor will be reopening these trails in the coming week or so. Thank you for your patience as we complete a couple last sets of “stringer stairs” on the eastern slope as well as verifying proper drainage. The last improvements to the eastern slope will be restoration planting in the vicinity of the trails once we get rain this fall as well as installation of way finding and interpretive signage this fall.

One of the 3 new creek crossings, just north of Silver Tree/ Glen Ridge is near completion (see below), and construction on the other 2 has begun and will continue in the next week or two.

We are excited to report that our “Creeks to Peaks” trails corridor has been selected as the featured project for the San Francisco Parks Alliance’s Party for the Parks gala, which will take place on September 13: http://www.sfparksalliance.org/our-work/philanthropy/party-parks.  A portion of funds raised will go to support completion of the “Creeks to Peaks” corridor, including interpretive and way finding signage in the Canyon.
