New effort in the works to build trail from Bay to ocean

Original post made on Aug 23, 2019

Why is this going to take 18 years to complete? Don't most of the trails already exist?

Would be a wondrous thing indeed to have the additional multi-use trails! But a connected across the spine of the Peninsula, wow!! Go POST & partners!

Perhaps more relevant to Mountain View residents is that the Stevens Creek Trail also connects the Bay to the ocean. It is a little less direct, but quite nice, meeting this other trail at the Black Mountain Backpacking Camp, if you wish, or more directly connecting to the Bay Area Ridge Trail via Skid Road Trail at Horseshoe Lake.
Check out Web Link to explore it from the comfort of your chair.

For more than 30 years there has been a complete Skyline to the Sea trail starting at Skyline and Hwy 9. Part of the problem, is there is only public bus service, intermittent, at the Santa Cruz coastal side.

You can patch together hikes or rides over to the coast on roads or trails (mixed) right now.
I consider putting the route together to be part of the fun. It's become easier over the last 30 years w/ more public open space.
