Cutting the ribbon was our mayor, Janet Abelson, who truly got into the spirit! County supervisor John Gioia, a friend to trails, spoke, as did Councilman Paul Fadelli.
Jenny Hammer, Trekkers’ vice president and the person who spearheaded the trail creation, discussed its history.
Glenn Wood, who designed the stairs pro bono along with the firm that employs him, SGPA Architecture, was heartily thanked, and attended with his family.
Mollie Hazen and Pam Austin, Trekker board members, helped put on this informal celebration, along with Jenny. Thanks!
Before we built this trail, this section of the Hillside Natural Area was essentially impassable. Now it is a major link in a wonderful series of lopping trails throughout the 100 acre park.
After the ceremony many of us repaired to McBear’s Social Club, which has a lively beer garden and is a wonderful asset to our city.
Hope to see you soon on Motorcycle Hill!
