Mori Point Restoration and Trail Plan
The National Park Service has completed the environmental review process for the Mori Point Restoration and Trail Plan. An environmental assessment (EA) was completed and distributed for public review in February and March 2006. Through environmental analysis and interagency review, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) has determined that the selected alternative will not significantly affect the environment and has issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the project.
For this project, the GGNRA and the Golden Gate Parks Conservancy will restore habitat and develop a safe and sustainable trail system at Mori Point, a unit GGNRA in Pacifica, CA. The goals of this project are to:
Restoration activities include actions such as:
The project offers a variety of trail experiences to different user groups and meets management objectives to protect and enhance natural resource values and provide public access. Hiker-only designations will be in effect on all segments through, or leading to, steep and erosion-prone areas. Multiple-use opportunities (hiking, bicycling, and equestrian uses) were identified on the California Coastal Trail and its main connector routes. Construction is currently underway - visit the site to see all the exciting changes!
