Trestle Trail Proposed Improvements


The Tiburon Parks, Open Space and Trails (POST) Commission will hold a public meeting to review and provide comments and recommendations to the Tiburon Town Council regarding citizen-initiated proposed improvements on and around the former railroad trestle berm located in the Blackie’s Pasture portion of the Richardson Bay Lineal Park, near the curve in Tiburon Boulevard at its intersection with Trestle Glen Boulevard. The proposed improvements, called the “Trestle Trail” project, include the following:

• Installation of an approximately 500-foot long accessible, paved, colored concrete pathway along the top of all but the final 20 feet of the railroad berm, defined by header boards that look like rails and surrounded on both sides by gravel ballast simulating Northwestern Pacific Railroad track appearance from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.
• The final 20 feet of the berm nearest the timbers would be fitted with actual historic railroad track and be designed with ties and surrounded by gravel ballast to appear as genuine useable track
• Installation of benches and “then and now” informational plaques at appropriate point(s) along the pathway

The improvements are being proposed by a private citizens group comprised of Jim Wood, David Holscher, Tom O’Neill and Phil Cassou and is jointly sponsored by the Tiburon Peninsula Foundation.

Questions or comments regarding both proposals should be directed to Pat Barnes, Director of Public Works/Town Engineer, at (415) 435-7388 or by email at
