The vision for the California Coastal Trail is a continuous public right-of-way along the California coastline; a trail designed to foster appreciation and stewardship of the scenic and natural resources of the coast through hiking and other complementary modes of non-motorized transportation. This planning effort is for the segment of the trail from the northern border of San Luis Obispo County southward to Cayucos. This segment includes breathtaking views, precious natural habitat, valuable recreation opportunities and areas of historical significance. This plan will include a review of existing plans in the area and review and evaluation of existing conditions on site. Public input and review, coordination with local, state and federal agencies and coordination with private property owners are critical to the success of the plan.
