At December’s San Mateo County Parks Commission hearing, Commissioners received an update on the Complete the Gap trail project and made a recommendation on dog management policies.
Complete the Gap Trail Project
This project is part of the Crystal Springs Regional Trail system that stretches from San Bruno to Woodside along the eastern side of the San Francisco watershed reservoirs. Sixteen miles of the 17.5-mile Crystal Springs Trail are complete. What remains are the more challenging segments, including this project which, when done, will remove the final gap to provide continuous trail from San Bruno Avenue to Highway 92. The South of Dam trail segment was completed in late 2014. The Crystal Springs Dam Bridge Trail will be completed in early 2018.
A side effect of growing up in San Mateo County was having its parks leave a deep-rooted impression on me; so much so that I was eager and honored to take on this role at the San Mateo County Parks Foundation. This year, my goal has been to hike all the trails in the San Mateo County Parks system so I may know the parks intimately and be inspired by all they have to offer.
