Hellman Park Trailhead and Puente Hills Preserve Trail Improvements
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Perimeter fencing will be replaced and extended to restrict unauthorized access at the Hellman Park Trailhead. Minor grading will occur along Puma, Mariposa and other trails to improve safety. Steep sections may be improved via the installation of stairs. Degraded portions of the Hellman Park Trail will be decommissioned and seeded/planted with native vegetation. A new sustainable alignment will be created.
Class 1, 2, 3, 4, 33
The project is exempt as it will be small and will not have a significant impact on the environment. It involves the rehabilitation/replacement of existing trails/fencing, and new fencing and structures will occur within the fuel modification zone or in areas devoid of native vegetation. Trail rehabilitation will occur on existing trails, the reroute is through non-native vegetation and habitat restoration is less than 5 acres all within the Puente Hills Preserve.
