A panoramic view and a place to get away from it all can be found in a new trail segment in Vallejo which connects to the Bay Area Ridge Trail, a network of 500 miles of hiking paths encircling nine counties.
Hiking enthusiasts and local dignitaries will dedicate the two-mile Blue Rock Springs Corridor at 10 a.m. Saturday at Hanns Memorial Park, located on the corner of Redwood Parkway and Skyline Drive.
"We will be celebrating the fact that the last segment (of the Blue Rock Springs trail) is done," said Kathy Hoffman, Solano County Committee of the Bay Area Ridge Trail co-chairperson.
Built by Greater Vallejo Recreation District, the Blue Rock Springs Corridor starts at Hanns Park, and takes hikers past the Blue Rock Springs Golf Course to the intersection of Columbus Parkway and Lake Herman Road.
The newest segment, about a mile in length, lies between Ascot and Columbus parkways, Hoffman said. "The completion of the new segment now allows us to dedicate the entire corridor," she said.
An official entry point into the Bay Area Ridge Trail can be found at the corner of Columbus Parkway and Lake Herman Road.
Mayor Tony Intintoli and others will be on hand to dedicate the new segment.
Refreshments will be available and participants will take a short hike through Hanns Park.
Hoffman said completing the last segment took many years, and added she had lobbied Intintoli for the last eight years to complete it.
Saturday's dedication will be one of the mayor's last actions before he leaves public office after the Nov. 6 election.
