Is the stretch of Bay Trail between the Palo Alto golf course and the Dumbarton Bridge ever going to be open to the public? Seems to me that this route is just as useful to Google employees as the Sunnyvale route.

Google provided us with a map of the latest trail work, which is now linked near the top of the story. Fair warning though, it's a pretty beefy pdf.

Thanks for the PDF. The article says that google can complete the path in the summer, but the PDF says the SCWD project doesn't start until 2020, and the article says the path can't be done until the Water District completes its project. So sounds like the remaining gap won't be completed for quite a while.
