Stebbins Cold Canyon Trail Extension
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
UC Davis proposes to establish an approximately 3/4-mile trail that would link two existing trails in the Stebbins Cold Canyon Reserve in Solano County. The two existing trails currently begin at Highway 128 south of Lake Berryessa's Monticello Dam. One trail (the Homestead Trail) traverses along Cold Canyon Creek for approximately one mile, and the other trail travels up and along the West Ridge of Cold Canyon. By joining these two trails, the proposed project will create a loop, allowing better hiking access to the Stebbins Cold Canyon Reserve. To establish the trail, California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection crews will remove brush from the trail and stack the brush for habitat or burn the brush where permissible. The Crews will install railroad ties for steps where necessary, and they will construct water bars to divert water off the trail where necessary to minimize possible erosion. The trail will be cleared of new brush annually or as necessary and additional steps and water bars will be installed as necessary to keep the trail in safe condition.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
sec. 15061,15034
Reasons for Exemption
The project is categorically exempt because it would include minor alteration in the condition of the land and vegetation, which do not involve removal of healthy, mature, or scenic trees (Section 15304). Thus the project would not have a significant effect on the environment.
