The Great Redwood Trail Alliance is a collection of individuals and organizations that support the Great Redwood Trail and its vision of connecting communities and providing world class recreation in Northern California. The Alliance is lead by a steering committee that includes one individual representing each of the four counties the trail will run through. The steering committee manages the Great Redwood Trail Fund at Humboldt Area Foundation.


Great Redwood Trail Fund

This fund supports charitable work to promote, support, and implement the development and use of the Great Redwood Trail along the north coast counties of Marin, Sonoma, Mendocino and Humboldt. The trail will traverse the entirety of, or portions of, the North Coast Railroad Authority’s tracks, rights-of-way and other properties, taking hikers and bicycle and horseback riders through a stunning North Coast river canyon and old growth redwood forests. Propelled by Senate Bill 1029, which was approved by the California Legislature and Governor and authored by Senator Mike McGuire, the trail corridor stretches 300 miles from San Francisco Bay to Humboldt Bay.
