Walk through history Museum and Bay Bandits team up to explore Fremont

Submitted By the Washington Township Museum of Local History

On Saturday, April 15th, join us for a six-mile hike around FremontÕs wonderful historic urban and rural areas. The hike begins at Irvington Plaza Park at 9:30 a.m., with an option for a group hike or self-paced, using a guide with directions (available at the check in table).

Beginning at historic downtown Irvington (Five Corners) at the intersection of Washington and Fremont Boulevards, we will find a new urban trail leading to Central ParkÕs Nature Trail, then on to the jewel of Fremont, Lake Elizabeth, to see the newly constructed flood control water channel and maybe catch a glimpse of the BART train as it dives into the tunnel beneath our lake.

Following the creek uphill on urban trails will allow panoramic views of the hills in all their spring glory. Crossing from Mission Creek to the Sabercat Watershed, we will descend along the trail flanked by native riparian woodland and open rolling hills, out to a bluff with fabulous views of the Bay all the way to San Francisco on a clear day.

Continuing on the descent back to our starting point we will cross the newest operational BART tracks in the area and pause to see and reflect on the historical remnants of our communityÕs agricultural heritage of wine and produce production.

This hike is co-sponsored by the Washington Township Museum of Local History and The Bay Bandits Volksmarch Club. This event is free, but donations will be gladly accepted. For more information please contact the museum at 510-623-7907 or email info@museumoflocalhistory.org.Ê
