TMP The Interagency Regional Trail Managment Plan
Conceptual Trail Policy Map Alternatives
Ready for Public Input
The National Park Service, California State Parks, and the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy have embarked on preparing an interagency regional trail management plan (TMP) that will establish the overall direction of future development and completion of the SMMNRA trail network over the next ten to fifteen years.
Based on identified desired conditions for park natural, cultural and recreational resources, the TMP will prescribe policies to streamline interagency management of the trail network throughout the national recreation area. The TMP will also include a trail policy map depicting the planned trail network. The TMP will discuss proposed locations for trails and trailheads; trail construction, management, and operation guidelines; and allowable uses. An Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report will accompany the TMP to provide a detailed analysis of potential environmental impacts of the proposed plan.
