Save Niles Canyon (SNC) encourages all who have supported preventing Caltrans from widening Niles Canyon Road to consider attending the second public meeting to discuss the feasibility of a multiuse trail through Niles Canyon from Sunol to Niles/Fremont. The concept/idea of such a trail was mentioned several times during the campaign to stop Caltrans from widening Niles Canyon Road and the meeting is a step towards making the idea a reality. SNC sees the multiuse trail idea as a positive addition to preserving the Canyonâ€™s heritage and enhancing the public use of a scenic and historic passageway. Of course the devil will be in the details. According to the announcement this meeting is considered a workshop so bringing your view and ideas is useful.
