Lead By Nature: The Bay Area Ridge Trail Story

John Aranson stares down a mountain and waits for a sign—something to tell him where the path should lead. That’s how he builds a trail.

Aranson and the Bay Area Ridge Trail group are dedicated to building the Ridge Trail, a 550-mile continuous loop that will trace the San Francisco Bay. It’s been 28 years since they started. This is their story on the REI Blog.
