As the land was being obtained by state and federal funds, the Task Force recognized the need for trails. In the 1970's, we organized a trail crew, led by Ron Webster.
Over the years, this volunteer crew has built and maintained a great many of the trails in the Santa Monica Mountains. Some of these trails laid the foundation for the Backbone Trail, including Musch Ranch, Topanga Nature, Dead Horse, Piuma Ridge, Saddle Creek, Fossil Ridge, Hondo Canyon, Ray Miller, Wood Canyon Vista, Coyote Trail, and many more.
The Trail Crew maintains a strong program of building and maintaining trails that support recreational use throughout the Santa Monicas and in adjacent parkland.
