White Oaks Trail Rehabilitation and Removal Project
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Hillside, scenic road/Public Open Lands
Replacement of an existing steep & poorly drained 1.25 mile portion of the White Oaks Trail Monte Bello Open Space Preserve with new 1.9 mile trails through grassland & mixed evergreen forest to correct erosion & sedimentation problems and provide a scenic and safe connection between the preserve's main parking lot & trail network. The new design will incorporate erosion control practices, be constructed at an everage 10% gradient using small earth-moving equipment, will not cross creeks, will not remove large trees, and will direct traffic away from a culturally significant area. The decommissioned trail will be restored to natural conditions. Construction will occur over a 2 month period between the months of April & October.
