Document Description
The FORTAG project would involve the phased construction of a multi-use trail in northwestern Monterey County, generally encircling the cities of Seaside, Del Rey Oaks, Monterey, and Marina and the California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) campus. The proposed alignment includes approximately 28 miles of new paved trail, primarily on the inland side of State Route 1 (SR 1). The Trail would accommodate pedestrians and bicyclists of all abilities. Within some segments the proposed alignment would include an adjacent four- to eight-foot side path separated from the main path to accommodate equestrian use. Dogs would be allowed on-leash throughout the system. The estimated number of Trail users would be between 1,000 and 3,000 daily, with the highest usage occurring on the CSUMB campus and near the Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail (Coastal Rec Trail) (Powell 2019). See NOC for full details.
