Niles Canyon closed to motor vehicles on September 30
Full access to hikers, bicyclists and runners
For the second time in three years, Alameda County and numerous other public agencies are hosting the Niles Canyon Stroll and Roll, to give pedestrians full access to the scenic roadway and to raise public awareness about a proposal to build a new public trail through the Canyon.
Hosts include Alameda County Supervisors Scott Haggerty and Richard Valle, East Bay Regional Park District, California Department of Transportation and others examining proposed public trail through scenic, historic Niles Canyon.
A 6.4-mile stretch of Niles Canyon Road between Old Canyon Road in Fremont and Main Street in Sunol will be closed for seven hours on Saturday, September 30, to allow hikers, runners and bicyclists to have full access to the road without automobile traffic. Staff from Alameda County and the East Bay Regional Park District will also be on hand with visual displays and other information to help the public understand a proposal to build a recreational trail through the canyon.
Parking in Sunol is located at 11600 Pleasanton-Sunol Road. Parking in Fremont is at Quarry Lakes Regional Recreation Area, 2100 Isherwood Way. Participants are encouraged to use public transportation. Free shuttle service provided to and from the Fremont BART station during event hours.
