Ancient Oaks Trail Extension

The extension of the Ancient Oaks Trail in Russian Ridge Preserve to the new Mindego parking lot on Alpine Road is now open for hiking, bicycling, and equestrian use. Due to the dry weather, the District was able to open it much sooner than anticipated. The Grand Opening was held on May 7, when visitors and staff gathered to celebrate this new access in to Russian Ridge! Thank you and congratulations to staff that contributed to the building of such a beautiful connection. Happy Trails!  Learn more
