Document Description
The Lake Calavera Trails Master Plan project would establish a formal network of signed, public multi-recreational trails and viewpoints by improving approximately 5 miles of existing trails around Lake Calavera. No new trails would be created by the project and trails would be designated for bicyclists and hikers or hikers only. The trails criss-cross an undeveloped area of approximately 262 acres with a variety of native vegetation. Along with trail improvements, the project proposes construction of a staging area, or trail head, to provide a formal access point with parking and other amenities for trail users. The project also proposes to establish parameters for trail maintenance. The trail system is and would be accessed at multiple publicly-accessible locations, including from surrounding streets, sidewalks, and other trails. The majority of the project area is owned by the City of Carlsbad.
