Seismic Upgrades to Water System Resume at Sawyer Camp Trail

Work to prepare the trail for rain is underway at several locations along the southern-most 3-mile section. This Saturday two hydroseed trucks will seed hillsides along the trail. The trucks will primarily use water system access roads that run behind the trail. The hydroseed trucks must drive on Sawyer Camp Trail between the 2.3 and 3 mile markers and will be supervised by an environmental specialist at all times.

Next week, construction work to seismically upgrade the water pipeline adjacent to the trail resumes.

Increased truck traffic will be present on the trail Tuesday to Friday (January 17th to 20th). The trail will remain open sunrise to sunset. No trail closures are now scheduled, but we do expect short closures this winter. Please subscribe (see right) to receive automatic email updates.

Before sunrise, our contractor will be moving large equipment down the trail to pipeline work locations. Please do not enter the trail before sunrise! You will be entering an active construction zone.

Construction is taking place near the popular southern-most 3-mile section of the trail. If you haven’t discovered the northern section of the trail yet, now is a great time! The northern trailhead is in Millbrae and can be reached from I-280 via the Larkspur/Hillcrest Blvd. exit (southbound on 280) or via the Millbrae Ave. exit (northbound on 280). Turn west on Hillcrest Blvd. to the trail entrance.

Please contact us 24 hours a day at (866) 973-1476 if you have any questions or concerns about activity near Sawyer Camp Trail.
