The Public Works Department is collaborating with members of the Open Space Committee on plans for two hiking trails in San Anselmo.
The Town Council will consider the trail projects on Tuesday, August 8, 2017, at 7:00 p.m.
Red Hill Trail, would ascend to the summit of Red Hill using the existing road cuts on one of the Town parcels. The summit, with its impressive views, is of historical significance as a corner point of the Mexican land grants of the early 1800's. Conceptual Map of Red Hill Trail
Memorial Ridge Trail would connect Memorial Park to Sorich Park and its network of Marin County trails via the ridge line and an easement through the Tamalpais Cemetery. Conceptual Map of Memorial Ridge Trail
Trail Walk on Proposed New Hiking Trails
Saturday, July 29th and August 5th, 2017
Town Staff will be providing a tour of the proposed
new trail. The existing trail may be fairly overgrown and steep in some areas so appropriate clothing and shoes should be worn.
