Foothill Trails Master Plan

WHAT IS THE FOOTHILL TRAIL MASTER PLAN?

The Foothill Trail Master Plan describes the vision and establishes the important characteristics for a trail to be developed along the Foothill corridor in Alameda County and Hayward. The trail will provide a route for travel and recreation that is both scenic and closely connected to our daily life, extending from Grove Way in the north to Industrial Parkway in the south, linking open spaces, parks, downtown Hayward, CSU-East Bay, and the emerging Mission Boulevard corridor. The trail will traverse several large, undeveloped properties as well as segments along City streets and trail connections to adjacent destinations. The Plan will provide critical guidance for public agencies and—especially—developers and should be used as part of the development review and approval process.

December 2020 UPDATE!

HARD invites you to share your thoughts on the Foothill Trail  Master Plan!

 HARD’s Board of Directors is providing for a public comment period beginning December 15, 2020 and running through January 31, 2021. 

The Foothill Trail will be a multi-use system of pathways and routes for connecting communities from South Castro Valley through the heart of Hayward to its southern city limit, and connecting with EBRPD’s Garin Regional Park all by paralleling Mission Boulevard.  We want to create pathways and routes that achieve your priorities and your participation can make it happen. See the latest plan here: Foothills Master Plan
