Trail dedicated at Carquinez
Strait Regional Shoreline on October 14, 2005.
Hulet Hornbeck enjoyed a distinguished career as Chief of Land Acquisition of the East Bay Regional Park District from 1965 through 1985, serving legendary leaders William Penn Mott and Richard Trudeau.
Hulet is credited with overseeing the acquisition of 49,000 acres of parkland, expanding the District's land holdings from eight parks (13,000 acres) to 46 parks (62,000 acres) thus securing the unique position that the East Bay Regional Park District still enjoys today as being the largest regional park agency in the nation.
The development of the EBRPD regional inter-park trails system is another of his many accomplishments. A lifetime conservationist and outdoorsman, Hulet has held many positions in local trail and conservation organizations, including American Trails, receiving many honors and awards.
East Bay Regional Park District Board President Beverly Lane and Board Member Ted Radke held a dedication of the Hulet Hornbeck Trail at Carquinez Strait Regional Shoreline on the occasion of his 88th Birthday, on October 14.
Hulet was also a long-time Board Member of American Trails.
