Need to Know

Most of Towhee Trail and this route's portion of Redtail Trail are singletrack trails that are open to bicycles as well as to runners and equestrians. All trail users should be aware that they may encounter other trail users moving at different speeds and having different needs. The standard trails right-of-way rule applies–bicycles yield to all other modes of travel and all other modes of travel yield to equestrians–but being courteous is always the right thing to do. Call out and make voice contact! How can I safely pass you? Thank you and have a good trip! If you or someone you encounter is lost, ill, or injured, or in any other sort of emergency, call 510.881.1121 from your cellphone (911 from a landline) to reach Regional Parks Public Safety 24 hours a day.
