Harford Springs Reserve Day Use-Staging Area Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Open-Space Reserve
Document Description
The proposed Project would construct an approximately 1.8-acre day use parking and staging area in the southeast corner of the existing Harford Springs Reserve (Reserve), a 325-acre undeveloped open space in Riverside County popular for hiking and horseback riding. The number of visitors, particularly in the peak spring and summer months, overwhelm the limited number of informal spaces currently available at the main entrance on Gavilan Road. The proposed Project would provide additional parking for approximately 10 truck and horse trailer combinations and 5 passenger vehicles in the southeast corner of the Reserve, located immediately west of Piedras Road, approximately 750 north of the intersection of Piedras Road and Idaleona Road. The area would also provide additional recreational amenities, including hitching posts, picnic tables, and trash receptacles. Development would include minimal vegetation clearing, grading, base compaction, limited concrete paving, delineation of individual parking spaces, and construction of a perimeter fence.
