The Trail Center is an all-volunteer organization that, on one Saturday each month, constructs and maintains hiking trails in the Bay Area.

On this special workday, the Trail Center will be participating in the annual Bay Area Ridge Trail REI Service Day. We’ll be improving sections of the Saratoga Gap Trail, including adding and spreading crushed rock to fill in exposed roots and eroded tread, cleaning drainage culverts, removing old barbed wire fencing, restoring tread width by removing duff, and general trail clean-up. This is a popular multi-use trail, including mountain biking, so the improvements will be done to accommodate all uses. The work will be mostly under tree cover. You do not need any previous experience to participate. The Trail Center will provide all training, tools and gloves, and there will be swag from REI, lunch from Chipotle and refreshments at the end of the workday.
