A Pacific Crest Trail Success Story
The Trinity Divide purchase is one of the biggest, single land-acquisition deals ever completed for the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail
The Trinity Divide project helps reduce the risk of pedestrian-vehicle crashes by providing permanent protection for an off-road route for the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail (NST) and by providing public transportation to a safe trailhead parking area.
The Trinity Divide project directly stimulates the economies of communities and towns in Siskiyou and Trinity counties by providing public transportation to and from a popular trailhead and ensuring that the NST will be protected for the benefit of current and future generations.
The project demonstrated the importance of partnerships and community engagement, and incorporated novel solutions to transportation challenges that benefited local communities, hikers, equestrians, hunters, birdwatchers, and anglers.
The project also helped resolve several challenges in public land management, including better protection and management of the NST, aggregating public land ownership, reducing public land boundaries, and protecting significant natural and outdoor recreation resources.
