I am for giving the $10.4 million trail funds to Stanford & Palo Alto/Santa Clara County.

The most important pedestrian/bicycle project in Palo Alto right now is undoubtedly the bridge over Hwy 101 at Adobe Creek. This is a vital route for both families walking out to the Baylands and commuters heading to their in the north Shoreline area.
The old path under the highway is inadequate because it was closed so often, including all of this year.
I noticed that the city has installed bike route markings along San Antonio Road as an alternative, but come on, how many parents will let their kids bike on San Antonio Road?

Very worried about the idea of bike trails for mountain bikes. These are typically very dangerous routes for serious mountain bikers and are not good for inexperienced bikers, children or hiking. They are also a draw for serious mountain bikers from across the region.
Please clarify the difference between bike paths and mtb trails. They are very different.
