Jump in now with input on the Great Redwood Trail (GRT)

Monday evening October 24th Senator Mike McGuire hosted a “Town Hall where he announced that the Surface Transportation Board (STB) had just railbanked approximately 179 miles of abandoned rail line between Willits and Eureka. See the STB decision at  Notice of Interim Trail Use

This is enormous news and is celebrated by the trail community!!!!

This news arrived two hours before the town hall commenced. The meeting’s purpose was to kick-off the GRT Master Planning process. This is the next step after railbanking the corridor, and will take about two years. The GRT Master Plan will guide the construction of the various trail segments covering construction cost, alignment, operating costs, types of trails, a timeline for buildout, environmental impacts, wildfire, safety measures, and governance. 

The California Coastal Conservancy will oversee this process. An equal part of this planning process is public outreach and you can participate today by visiting the Great Redwood Trail Master Plan site HERE and give your input on the Survey. 

Get involved now in the early planning of this world class trail!!!!

The Trails Summit was a big success! If you were unable to attend or wish to revisit, here’s the video.
