Please Support the Pogonip Multi-Use Trail

Pogonip Multi-Use Trail Proposal

The Santa Cruz Parks department has proposed a 1.5 mile single track multi-use trail which would connect Golf Club Drive to the U-Con trail at Rincon Road. This scenic family and beginner friendly trail will connect downtown Santa Cruz to Upper Campus and will be a much more pleasant experience than riding along Hwy 9, the train tracks or parking at the Rincon Parking lot.

The approval of the Pogonip mutli-use trail will be on the Santa Cruz City Council agenda in late March. This trail was proposed as a long term solution to the problems of transient camping and heroin dealing that had taken root in the area. There is an organized opposition to this solution who fundamentally oppose bikes on trails.

This trail is the most important issue for the long term expansion of legitimate mountain biking in Santa Cruz County.

Here is how you can help

  1. I do support multi-use trail in the Pogonip. Makes a lot of sense.

  2. Our local high school composite cross country mountain biking team also supports multi-use trails. We teach IMBA trail rules and learn how to share the trails with all users. This year our team will volunteer time to help maintain the trails we all use. What great recreation we have for everyone to enjoy.

  3. I don’t think I can sign the petition. There is not a lot of evidence that the proposed trail is actually going to solve the camping and drug problems. I doubt those are the main reasons that the biking community supports the path.
