SOTA Trail Improvements Underway

Construction is underway on the section of Creeks to Peaks trail on School District property.  This trail connecting Glen Canyon to Twin Peaks was started in 2015 by Rec and Park staff and through a major volunteer effort with Volunteers for Outdoor California (V-O-Cal). Improvements to be made by contractor include natural surface box steps at either end of the switchbacks in particularly steep areas, refinement of the trail walking surface, drainage improvements and a trailhead sign. A staging area has been set up at the top of the trail by Portola.

On Monday morning, February 22, we will close the trail with fence panels and sign it with a detour route (Turquoise) for the remainder of the project. Construction is anticipated to take approximately 2 months.

Thank you for your patience. The trail is being improved with support from the San Francisco Parks Alliance.  Once completed, it will be easier for people to traverse and more environmentally sustainable.
