Joaquin Miller Pump Track

After many months of advocacy and red tape, BTCEB and Oakland Trails have received approval to build a brand-new pump track at Joaquin Miller Park. The track will be located near the Sequoia Bayview trailhead, just across Skyline Boulevard. It will make Joaquin Miller even more fun! Start or end your ride at the pump track, or hit it in between two of your loops. Or just go up for some skill building in the woods.

We're currently running a GoFundMe campaign to help pay for design of the park and construction materials. (Yay, dirt!) Please chip in whatever you can; we aren't sure yet what all the costs will wind up being.

And if you can't afford cash right now, no worries! Pretty soon we'll be starting construction, and when that happens you can contribute your sweat. We'll be organizing work crews and we'll need lots of hands to make this happen.

Many thanks to Stan Dotson and all the BTCEB folks who've done the hard work to push this through. Also, thanks to Oakland City Council member Annie Campbell Washington for her office's support of the project.

Let's do it!
