Document Description
The proposed Project reroutes a multipurpose recreational trail to avoid wetlands and constructs a new creek crossing bridge that will be suitable for equestrian use. The Project involves rerouting approximately 1,500 linear feet of the existing Randall Spur Trail and creek crossing bridge in open space located in the Point Reyes National Seashore. The Randall Spur Trail bisects Olema Creek and soil from the trail is entering the creek during heavy rain events. Equestrian use of the trail causes disturbance of the creek bottom and reduces water clarity. The purposes of the Project are to reduce soil erosion from the existing trail, improve the Olema Creek crossing, and improve fish spawning potential for salmonid species. In addition, the planning and design elements of the Rift Zone Trail pose no environmental impacts and are included in this Notice of Exemption.
