MCOSD Public Comment Period for Eagle Rim Trail Project

To comment online, go hereDeadline for the comment period is September 14, 2018. 

A brief description of the project from MCOSD's website: "The Marin County Open Space District (MCOSD) proposes to improve the sustainability of the existing Eagle Rim Trail to support incorporation into the MCOSD trail system designated for hikers and cyclists. The proposed Eagle Rim Trail would be a 4,815-foot long single-track trail, with an average grade of 9.34 percent, that predominantly meanders along the northwestern corner of the Mount Burdell Open Space Preserve. Proposed improvements would ensure the trail is properly drained, minimize future maintenance, improve sustainability, and improve user safety. For more info, go here.
