Timber Cove Coastal Trail Feasibility Study
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The project will identify the most feasible alignment of ~3 miles of California Coastal Trail through the small coastal community of Timber Cover on the northern Sonoma Coast. A major focus of the project will be identifying safe, non-motorized transportation options that fit with the community's needs as well as the principles for designing the Coastal Trail. The feasibility study will include outreach to the Timber Cove community to develop alternatives for the section of the California Coastal Trail connecting Stillwater Cove Regional Park to Fort Ross State Historic Park. It will also include resource, traffic and engineering studies to support CEQA analysis and selection of a preferred trail alignment.
