Description

Build trail and friendships along the ridge! #BayAreaRidgeTrail #RidgeTrailDay

On November 3, hundreds of volunteers will join the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council, REI, and our park and non-profit partners for the 11th annual Ridge Trail Day to celebrate and give back to the trail we love!

Volunteers will repair trail tread, build drainage features, remove litter, improve trailside habitats and give the Ridge Trail some TLC! After their hard work volunteers will be able to socialize and have a chance to win great prizes from REI.

The locations, descriptions, and hours for each project are listed below to help you choose a site to attend. For volunteers under 18, please pay attention to the minimum age requirement.

Each volunteer must register separately with their own email address. To register a large group, or with any questions, please call the Ridge Trail's volunteer coordinator Tina Cuevas at (415) 561-2595 ext 204 or email tinacuevas@ridgetrail.org

Join as a new Ridge Trail Council member for $25 or make a donation when you register and get a great piece of commemorative swag on November 3. While supplies last!
