ATTENTION: Boulder Springs Trail Day has been cancelled due to the early winter. The trail will be closed until early spring and a new trail day will be announced then.
Join us to help finish off recent work on Boulder Springs Trail in Gary Giacomini Preserve in San Geronimo Valley. SG Valley locals know this trail as Land Bridge, it has been referred to as Vista Hamaca on some trail documents but the new name relates to a giant boulder just off the side of the trail and a natural freshwater spring that flows from beneath it. The trail is almost complete but we still need to remove brush in the trail corridor, brace the outsloped edges, install drain rock in a muddy section and make a land ramp to bypass a narrow section of trail.
We will use hand tools which require a fair amount of strength and stamina, and work on uneven terrain. The work is recommended for people ages 12 and older with a moderate to high level of fitness. We provide lunch, snacks, drinks, water, tools, extra gloves, and training! Dress in layers you can get dirty, wear sturdy shoes, and bring a water bottle.Questions: contact Volunteer Coordinator Greg Reza at GReza@marincounty.org.
Getting there: If you plan to ride your bike, meet at the Boulder Springs trailhead along the San Geronimo Ridge Fire Road at 9:15am. The location is marked with an “X” on the attached map. If you drive, we will shuttle from the Fire Road gate along Sir Francis Drake Blvd. Meet at the Leo T. Cronin Fish Viewing Area west of Lagunitas. DIRECTIONS: From Hwy 101 in Larkspur, take the exit for Sir Francis Drake Blvd west 13.6 miles, the parking area is on the left (just past Shafter Bridge).
