Public Workshop To Discuss New Bike Trail
A new bicycle trail may be coming to the Santa Clarita Valley and community members are invited to a public workshop to learn about the proposed Crest to Coast Trail. From 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 8, at the Santa Clarita Sports Complex Activities Center, representatives from the Crest to Coast Trail Coalition will provide information and request feedback on the trail route, use, and amenities.
The proposed trail is described as a “multi-use route from Magic Mountain in the eastern Angeles National Forest to the coast in Ventura County. It is envisioned running along the northern slopes of the ANF, across the 5 and 14 to Santa Clarita Woodlands parks, and eventually out through the Newhall Ranch property where it will meet the Ventura County line. It is hoped that Ventura County trail advocates will continue the route all the way to the ocean. To ease the process, the route may link several existing natural-surface routes include fire roads, service roads, and trails.” according to the Concerned Off-Road Bicyclists Association’s website.
