    New bike/ped friendly gate at Mission Peak

    I'm happy to report that a bike/ped gate has been installed at the end of Witherly Lane at Ohlone College. After Panorama trail opened a few years ago, there were 3 options to end the ride:
    - climb back a 30% grade loose fireroad (done it once, never again)
    - roam the single track (which is not that great)
    - walk through a cattle grate and hop over the fence (not easy in bike shoes)

    Now, after finishing Panorama, one can exit at the bottom of the fire road and ride through Ohlone college.

    Thanks to Jim Townsend, who manages the Trails Development Programs at the EBRPD, for going through the paperwork (not that easy since that section of the park belongs to Ohlone college, not the district) and making it happen.

    When did this happen? The gate at the very bottom was locked on Thursday.
    Let the good times roll.
