Project Description

The San Rafael Hills “Mountain Do” Trail is an ADA accessible trail placed on the bed of an existing service road. The gravel on one side of the service road was replaced with a mixture of decomposed granite and soil stabilizer creating a trail tread with a minimum width of 48 inches.

The trail also include two rest areas where walkers and the mobility impaired can move off the trail into landscaped areas containing appropriate native plantings, benches, picnic tables, ADA accessible outdoor fitness equipment, and interpretive signage. Creation of these rest areas required the placement of three bridges across an existing cement drainage channel, as well as brush clearance and a minimal amount of grading. Minimal grading was also required on a small portion of the trail to reduce the running slope and bring it into compliance with U.S. Access Board standards.

Vehicle barriers were installed to prevent entry by motorized vehicles while allowing pedestrians and persons with disabilities to access the trail. Because the trail provides an opportunity for many user-groups to engage in activities previously unavailable to them, it has been named the San Rafael Hills “Mountain Do” Trail.

Project Background

The project is funded through a grant from the federal Recreational Trails Program and is administered through the California Department of Parks and Recreation.
