Trail users have recently expressed a variety of safety concerns involving off-leash dogs on the Montclair Railroad Trail (MRRT). The trail is a favorite spot for walkers, including those accompanied by children and pets; children going to and from school; runners, and bicyclists.
MRRT is an"on-leash" Oakland City Park. Signs at two main entrances and a reminder on the trail's bulletin board serve as notice that dogs are to be on-leash. Dog owners whose pets are off-leash are in violation of City Ordinance 12835 (See Chapters 6.04.080 & 6.04.070 for specifics) and are liable for any resulting safety hazards involving other trail users.
