  Bay Trail New Year Report
January 12, 2004

Richmond continues to lead the entire Bay Area in miles of Bay Trail completed. The upbeat, colorful Richmond Bay Trail New Year Report now is available at:



The New Year Report describes the 1-1/2 miles of new trails that were built or under construction during 2003.  Richmond now has 20 miles of Bay Trail built and under construction -- more than any other city on the planned 450-mile recreation and transportation corridor encircling San Francisco and San Pablo Bays.  The Bay Trail links all of the parks along Richmondıs southern shoreline -- Point Isabel, Shimada, Marina Bay, Vincent, Lucretia Edwards and Miller/Knox.


Closing the remaining 20 miles of gaps in Richmondıs Bay Trail will require advance planning to secure land, as well as funds to design and build new trail.  The greatest challenge ahead is completion of the 12 miles of planned Bay Trail: between Point Pinole Regional Shoreline and Wildcat Creek Regional Trail and north from the Richmond/San Rafael Bridge around Point San Pablo to the Point San Pablo Yacht Harbor.  Read all about it in the Richmond Bay Trail New Year Report.


TRAC, the Trails for Richmond Action Committee, encourages you, your family and friends to get out and enjoy the Bay Trail in Richmond.   A new, updated
