Trail Partners to launch pilot program in April.
Working with the Marin Municipal Water District, MCBC has developed a pilot program to encourage mindful travel through high density areas and a greater awareness of one’s surroundings.
MMWD reports that a large percentage of complaints come from visitors walking or riding around Lake Lagunitas, so that’s where we’ll be rolling out the pilot program: The Slow Zone.
The Slow Zone will be voluntary, but signage and outreach will encourage riding at a less aggressive pace around the lake and to always slow down for other trail users. It will also encourage hikers and walkers to pay attention and not block the trail.
WHAT: Slow Zone Outpost host representing MCBC
WHERE: Lake Lagunitas trail loop, map will be provided. Accessible from Bolinas Fairfax Road or Phoenix Lake.
WHEN: 9 am to 12 pm – Saturday, April 9, Saturday, April 16 & Sunday, May 1. (please arrive at least 15 minutes before your shift starts)
DUTIES: Hand out brochures, answer questions about the Slow Zone (talking points provided) and install bike bells. Also help set-up and tear down station.
