Geary Ranch Road Removal/Road to Trail Conversion
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Remove approximately two miles of degraded, non-historic Geary Ranch Road in Annadel State Park and restore natural or effective drainage patterns to correct drainage problems contributing to severe erosion and protect salmonid resources by reducing sediment into Matanzas Creek. Remove modern grazing infrastructure (plastic water lines and water troughs). Construct a new, barrier-free, ADA-accessible trail in the general vicinity of the existing roadbed and incorporate portions of the original road alignment where practicable. No known cultural resources or significant plant populations will be impacted by road removal or trail construction. However, if unexpected archaeological remains are unearthed, all work within 30 feet will be temporarily halted or diverted until identification and proper treatment are determined and implemented by a DPR-qualified archaeologist.
