Program Manager Paul Hart has almost completed the construction of a new 20 mile multi-use motorized single-track trail connecting the Cal-Ida area to the greater Downieville trail system. The connection will successfully link the Hall’s Ranch trail to the Chimney Rock trail.
The connection will also provide access to the Fiddle Creek Trail and Trailhead near Cal-Ida Campground. This will provide additional recreational opportunities while mitigating impacts to natural resources such as wildlife, watershed and soils, as well as realigning existing trail segments to provide for a sustainable trail system, address erosion concerns, and improve trail user experience. The project will only focus on the rough cut of the new trail. The finished trail product will be completed by another grant through the California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle and Recreation Division.
That grant will focus on items such as tread armoring, culvert
installation, signage installation, trail adjustments for user
enjoyment and finish trail tread.
This RTP Grant Scope includes:
2012: Lombard Trail - Idaho
2007: Cary Bayou Trail - Texas
2006: Wyoming State Trail Crew
