The Napa County Regional Park and Open Space District is inviting the public to Sunday’s opening of Moore Creek Park at 2607 Chiles Pope Valley Road.
The official ribbon cutting will take place at 1:00 p.m. Hikers and cyclists are welcome to participate in group hikes and rides or explore on their own.
Volunteers for Outdoor California is providing 125 volunteers to put finishing touches on newly built trails on Saturday and Sunday.
Sunday’s opening will include a trail dedication with the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council. Moore Creek Park plays an important role in the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council's “GO NORTH” trail alignment in their plan to promote and sustain a 550-mile hiking, mountain biking and equestrian trail on the ridgelines around San Francisco Bay.
Today, more than 340 Ridge Trail miles are open. The council is working to connect the full loop.
Moore Creek Park will host about 4.7 miles of Ridge Trail anchoring a new route along Napa's eastern ridgeline, which will eventually connect Lake Hennessey on the south, Calistoga through the Oat Hill Mine Trail to the north, and Bothe Napa State Park to the west.
Due to the large number of volunteer trail workers at Moore Creek Park and limited parking, horse trailers are discouraged for this weekend.
