Recent accomplishments include adding the off-leash dog area, rerouting eroding trails, creating a new trail map, and installing interpretive signs and directional trail markers.

FOJMP has a number of programs that might be of interest to you:

• Working to maintain Joaquin Miller’s Abbey & restore the Woodminster Cascade
• Restoration work at the Fern Ravine wetlands and nearby redwoods
• Improving the gates at the dog off-leash area
• Continuing to improve trail safety, usability by installing trail signs
• New entrance portal on Joaquin Miller Road

Come work with us on these and other projects to make the park more visitor-friendly and help improve trail safety.

Once again, welcome, and we’ll see you on the trail, at the dog run, in the theater, or volunteering on a restoration project!
