Welcome to ECTrailTrekkers - the home for paths, trails and walks in El Cerrito, California.
10 am Saturday, May 25 Hike
We’ll walk the edge of Wildcat Canyon, see a home by Bernard Maybeck and plenty of modern architecture, take some unusual trails, and see abandoned trails we hope to rescue. This two-to-three hour hike will be steep in parts. . Meet Dave Weinstein by the Kensington Library, 61 Arlington Avenue. 510-524-1737, email@example.com
10 am Sunday, May 26 Work Party to Complete Motorcycle Hill
Trail Trekkers continue installing stair treads on the steep portions of Motorcycle Hill Trail and refining the trail base. Though it is now usable and has been getting used by hikers, geocachers, school children, dog walkers, naturalists, and others, the addition of steps and further refinements will make for a much easier hill climbing/descending experience. Tools and gloves provided. Bring energy, enthusiasm, and water!
Meet at the trailhead, corner of Navellier and Blake Streets. Please RSVP to Jenny Hammer, 510-524-1590 firstname.lastname@example.org
Heavy rain cancels.
A History of Motorcycle Hill - Read about it here.
El Cerrito’s forgotten paths won’t remain forgotten for long. In July of 2010, 30 people came together to revitalize this small city’s surprisingly large network of paths, pedestrian and bicycle walkways, and hillside steps.
The meeting, sponsored by the city’s Environmental Quality Committee and El Cerrito Historical Society, was held at city hall.
The goal is to bring greater attention to the trails that are currently usable, and to restore those that have been overgrown or, in a few cases, blocked by fences or shrubbery. Trail Trekkers will identify, improve and document the paths of El Cerrito for the enjoyment and increased safety of the community.
Members of the group, El Cerrito Trail Trekkers, will soon probe city records, survey the trails, and lead trail hikes and other events.
The El Cerrito group will begin by determining where trails and other city or other publicly-owned right-of-way is located. Trail hikes and other events will be held to publicize the paths and increase usage.
With the help of volunteers we will produce a map and online guides to the paths, and help restore those that have disappeared.
