On Tuesday, Jan. 21st, the northern section of Sawyer Camp Trail will be closed from the Hillcrest Drive entrance, south 2.5 miles to just before the Jepson Laurel. The trail will be closed all day for Water System-related maintenance. The southern trailhead at Crystal Springs Road will remain open.
San Andreas Trail's southern section, between Hillcrest Dr. and Larkspur Dr., has been repaired and is now open! It is gravel-surfaced, so cyclists must detour via the bike route along Skyline Drive. This section connects Sawyer Camp Trail to San Andreas Trail.
