Birkie Trail Capstone

Becker Law Link Bridge & Birkebeiner Capstone Monuments 

Imagine seeing your or a loved one’s name forever and permanently printed on the new Birkebeiner Capstone Monument as you ascend the trail toward the new Becker Law Link bridge over Highway 77.

Each year forevermore in spring, summer, winter and fall, over twenty thousand Birkie trail users will pass by two giant boulders unearthed from next to the Birkie trail. The boulders mark the safe trail passage and crossing of Becker Law Link bridge just east of Hayward.

Each large Capstone Monument boulder will prominently feature only ten donor names. The first Monument is already filled. There are already 17 total Capstone Donors! Only 3 places remain on the final Capstone boulder,  These donors will have their names forever on the boulders of this iconic Birkie Trail feature (donations can be payable over two years).

This project “caps” the final Birkie Trail bridge projects, connecting the Birkie Trail on the north and south sides of Highway 77 and improving access to the World Class Birkebeiner Trail for all.
