    National Trails Day at Fernandez Ranch

    Join us and help build a new section of the Bay Area Ridge Trail at Fernandez Ranch!

    Volunteers for Outdoor California ( and the Muir Heritage Land trust are hosting this volunteer trail building event on June 5 - 7.

    Volunteers can choose to make this a one or two day activity, and are welcome to camp (free!) both Friday and Saturday nights.  A continental breakfast will be served on Saturday morning, and Saturday evening there will be snacks, dinner, and entertainment.  A hot breakfast on will be served on Sunday morning.
