V-O-Cal volunteers will be rehabilitating long-neglected trail at Lynch Canyon Open Space, land that was saved from becoming landfill by the Solano Land Trust, our hosts this weekend. Our focus will be on the Prairie View Trail, a segment of the Bay Area Ridge Trail, which continues across the street in Rockville Hills County Park, as part of an eventual 550 mile loop encircling the Bay. We will be widening the trail in places, improving drainage, and making some small re-routes to improve sustainability.
The Napa County Open Space and Parks District is naming the Madrone trail after Chino Yip. We have worked on this trail in the past and will be extending it this year. Chino Yip was instrumental in the planning and development of Moore Creek Park. He is also a V-O-Cal crew leader and long-time volunteer. Help honor Chino by participating in this project!
We are headed back to Sanborn Park in Santa Clara County Parks. This year we will build a new trail that will connect to a bridge to be installed later this summer by park staff.
