Temporary Weekday Closure of Sawyer Camp Trail Segment Still in Effect



A short section of the southern half of the Sawyer Camp Trail remains temporarily closed to through traffic weekdays, from approximately mile 1-1/4 to mile 3-1/2, Mondays through Fridays.  The closure is in effect up to July 1 for public safety because of large equipment in use to prepare an adjacent area within the Peninsula Watershed for habitat restoration.




Meanwhile the first mile and a quarter from the entrance continues to be well used by midweek
hikers, strollers and cyclists. The trail is fully open on weekends. 

The work is part of a long-term project to bring back, monitor and maintain approximately 180 acres of native oak woodland and grassland.  The historic Peninsula habitats provide essential food and shelter for diversity of native California plant, butterfly, bird, and other wildlife species, some found nowhere else in California. 

This first closure will end by July 1, with a second one scheduled to begin  some time in August or September. A repaving  of the trail’s entire southern half will follow. 

Questions:  (866) 973-1476.
