Document Description
A Proposal by The County Parks Division of the General Service Department of the County of San Luis Obispo to construct a 2.5 mile Sapwi Trail is a multi-use backcountry trail that is open to pedestrians, equestrians and mountain bikers. The proposed 2.2 mile extension would provide a more user friendly access to the Parks north shore trail system that includes the Blinn Ranch Trail and Falcon Trail. The propose extension would include grubbing and compaction of approximately 2.5 miles of native soil. The trail width is approximately 3 feet wide and will be located in areas with less than 20 percent slope. No trees will be removed or impacted for the creation of this trail extension. All work will be done with hand tools such as shovels. Pruning of brush will be done with chain saws and hand pruners. Brush will be scattered by hand in the surrounding landscape out of view of the user. Erosion control measures will be used where necessary. No grading is proposed This proposal will disturb 287,496 sf. This is a phased project to be completed by volunteers sections at a time, not to exceed one acre at any one time.
