Morgan Hill Walking Group

Morgan Hill Walking Group members attended the opening of the new Boccardo Trail in Alum Rock Park, San Jose, California on 11 May 2002.  The trail was built on a newly annexed parcel with funds provided by well-known San Jose attorney James Boccardo, in memory of his father, John Boccardo. It is part of a system of trails that will eventually encircle San Francisco Bay.
