Back to the Iron Horse Trail Comments on Stories, posted by Tango, a resident of the Vineyard Avenue neighborhood, on Jun 21, 2010 at 9:48 am
Thank you Kurt for your info. I do have a comment about how trails around the area are built. There are many horses people on the area and not all ride our horses. I am a person that cannot ride my horse (Health reasons) So my horses pull carts. I am so restricted as to where I can go that it takes some of the joy out of my hobby. Trails have poles or narrow gates that keep my carts out ,meaning I can't use that trail. I know they are ment to keep out motorized vehicles but they keep me out also.

Hi Tango. The Trails Committee has voted to reconfigure all the trail access gates in Pleasanton to be wider, with elimination of the "V" design. That construction should take place in the next month or so. If you let me know which gate(s)in particular are giving you problems, I'll get more specific information to you as to what's planned, and when that gate will be redone.

Kurt nice to hear. Only know the trail from Busch to Santa Rita. Don't know any other parts in Pleasanton and as to that stretch of trail does not do me much good, I usually take my horses for a three or four mile jaunt. I have seen the trails in Danville and Alamo and have been temped to try them,but are really not sure what all the access points are or where to park my trailer. I so am sticking to Sycamore Grove during the week because that is the only time that my permit from LARPD will allow me to drive there. I hope the redoing of the trail configuration will help the person with the bike trailer. Thank you for all your concern.
