Hikers visiting the Black Mountain Ranch Open Space Park will have two new trails to pick starting Saturday.
City officials cut the red ribbon near the paths for the Lilac and Ahwee trails in Rancho Penasquitos.
“Oh it's exciting,” said resident Bob Willcox. “Opens up opportunity to go on both sides of the road without going on the road. Just another trail that's fun in itself.”
The two trails connect both sides of Black Mountain Open Space Park and Carmel Valley Road. That will make the trails safer, officials said.
More than 100 community members volunteered more than 1,200 hours to build the new trails.
