Document Description
Initial Study and Negative Declaration. The Fort Ross State Historic Park Kashia Loop Trail (Project) is a proposed Class I pedestrian interpretive trail route totaling approximately 1.66 miles. The project encompasses the integration of new trail construction (approximately 1.26 miles), and existing road and trail routes (approximately 0.4 mile). Together, the combined routes will link many existing park features with areas of interest previously unidentified to the general public. Overall design will include interpretation at selected points to bring together stories from the indigenous Kashia Band of Pomo Indians; Alaska Natives; the Call Ranch Period; and others in the international community once associated with the Russian American Company's Ross Settlement. The project will create an interpretive multimedia experience encouraging park visitors to explore the deep and complex layered cultural landscape of the park.
