Great Redwood Trail

Not a ride, but I thought folks might find this interesting.

There is still a long way to go—passage by the California Assembly (lower house of the state Legislature), Governor’s signature, funding, work on the ground—but the California Senate (upper house of the state Legislature) has unanimously passed a bill to create the Great Redwood Trail Agency, tasked with converting the existing disused rail line from Willits to Eureka into a hiking, biking, and equestrian trail. This route through the spectacular redwood forests of northern California would be a stellar proposition for non-motorized trail users.

They call me Old Grumble-Face. I have no idea why they do that....

    Looks fabulous! Great to hear it had a unanimous vote at the very start, too. That bodes well. How fun it would be to work for that agency and help develop that project!

      If/when built, the Great Redwood Trail would connect with other existing and planned trails/paths all the way to Sausalito, making a 300-mile non-motorized route almost all the way from the Oregon border to San Francisco. Unfortunately, by the time it’s finished, I might need to do it in a motorized wheelchair.

    What a great trail that will be! It is encouraging to see projects like this. Now let’s hope that it really gets started.
