This project, however, did not come cheaply. Even with some creative use of California Conservation Corps labor, the Trail's price tag amounted to over $36,000. Fortunately, this is where the Mounted Patrol Foundation stepped in. The Foundation is the charitable arm of the Mounted Patrol riding club whose charter specifies support for worthy community activities, often with an equestrian bent. In the end, the Patrol Foundation has provided nearly $18,000 toward the Trail's construction. As noted by Fentress Hall, chairman of the Woodside Trails Committee, the project's completion represents an important investment in the future.
