Improvements to the open space areas of the site include 1.87 miles of new hiking trails, 0.28 mile of new emergency access road/bike trail, restoration of existing trails, restoration of riparian, Oak woodland and grassland areas, restoration of graded fire breaks, and selective fire management pruning and clearing. The management plan also recommends management and maintenance activities over the next 15 years.
