A ring around the bay? Well, almost. Since it first steps in 1989, The Bay Area Ridge Trail has come to reach over 335 miles and is now available to hikers around the San Francisco Bay. It’s ultimately planned as a multi-use trail for hikers, runners, cyclists and equestrians, and when completed, the Ridge Trail will form a complete ring and connect over 75 parks and open spaces. No matter where you live in this area, you’re not far from it.
