Document Description
The Wolf Creek Trail Project is an approximately ±2.3-mile trail that roughly follows the alignment of Wolf Creek through the City of Grass Valley from its southern limits to the northeast corner of town. The trail is located entirely within the Caltrans and City right-of-way. The trail will be separated from vehicular traffic to the greatest extent feasible and extend an existing ±1.2-mile section that currently ends at Freeman Lane and Allison Ranch Road. The trail will be used by both pedestrians and bicyclists alike. Additional amenities include trail signage, benches, interpretive signage, murals, and fencing along segments of the trail. Safety improvements and signage would be installed at crossings to conform to applicable standards. The proposed path is 10-feet wide in most locations, narrowing to a lesser width in constrained locations. In the areas with significant slopes, retaining walls will be installed as edge treatments. When on or adjacent to existing roadways, the proposed trail would be a 10-foot wide concrete shared bicycle and pedestrian path separated from the existing road by curb and gutter.
