680 Trail "Grand Opening"

The new "680 Trail" built by local mtn bikers (including the Forest Knolls Freewheelers, the club that did much of the construction at Tamarancho) will be opening on Saturday May 19 at 9:30 am.

The festivities will last through early afternoon and include a bike bell give-away and group rides courtesy of Access4Bikes, a Marin based mtn bike advocacy group. For more information about this event go to: Access4Bikes

The latest addition to Marin's trail system connects the Terra Linda/Sleepy Hollow Preserve with the Loma Alta Preserve and will be open to bikes! The trail has sweeping views of Mt. Tam, San Francisco, Mt Diablo and Lucas Valley, and will connect San Anselmo, San Rafael and Fairfax to the Bay Area Ridge Trail.

The 680 Trail is currently closed to mountain bikers and equestrians so that work crews can put the finishing touches on the trail and let it settle following the April rains. Stay tuned for details, a new map, and RSVP information in early May.
