Timeless Trails


Timeless Trails is our campaign to transform trail access in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Join us as we raise $5 million to build, restore, and maintain more than 60 miles of trails. Will you help us create trail magic by making a tax-deductible donation?

This is a big deal.

As a part of Timeless Trails, we will:

  • Open a new National Monument (6,000 acres, 19 miles of all-new trails) for you to enjoy

  • Rebuild and reopen fire-scarred State Parks, including Big Basin, so you can get back to the parks you love

  • Maintain these and other local trails long into the future so every trail adventure is a fantastic one

  • Bring you bigger and better events. Our in-the-field Dig Days and educational Trail Academy classes fill up in a matter of hours, and we will grow our team to bring you more outdoor trail work and classes

We have the blueprints, approvals, and support of our partners. Now all we need is the community support to create Timeless Trail experiences for generations to come.

Fall 2023 Progress Update

We're currently five miles into Cotoni-Coast Dairies trail development and are working in Big Basin to improve wildfire resilience.

Our 2023 stewardship programs have helped over 750 volunteers to complete over 4,000 hours of trail work in local open spaces.

Check out our recent mention in the SF Chronicle here.
