Document Description
A community of California walnut woodland within Chino Hills SP, a habitat type identified as sensitive by the California department of Fish and Wildlife, is being impacted by road known as North Ridge Trail. Poor road placement and its required maintenance are causing excessive erosion, resulting in the loss of trees as well as impacting the overall health and value of the walnut woodland in this area of the park. State Parks is proposing walnut woodland restoration as well as reducing the footprint of the road by converting a section of it from a road to a trail. This will reestablish proper drainage and reduce the degradation of the slope. The entire project footprint is approximately 3.50 acres in size; of that, approximately 1.43 acres are currently service road. The project will reduce the road to a multi-use trail, a reduction of approximately 0.71 acres. The area of the walnut been incorporated into this project.
