365 Things To Do In Palos Verdes – Follow The Development Of The California Coastal Trail

The California Coastal Trail is closer to being completed.  After waiting for more than 27 years, advocates of the statewide trail that is a 1,200 mile pathway from Oregon to Mexico saw their dream  finally coming true. 
The trail was authorized by voters in 1972, and  the California Coastal Conservancy has approved a $500,000 grant that is funded by voter-approved state bonds.  It will allow Rancho Palos Verdes to create 9 miles of decomposed granite trails along the city’s coast from Palos Verdes Estates to San Pedro.  The trail will be completed with the cooperation of the city and the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy, and may be built within the next 36 months.  The city of Rancho Palos Verdes is also contributing $60,000 toward the cost of the trail.
The California Coastal Trail will even have access from the trail to the Portuguese Bend Reserve through Gateway Park.  The trail will also be going through several improved paths by Terranea Resort and Trump National Golf Club.  It will be spectacular to walk along the coast with it’s breathtaking views, and in some areas equestrians and cyclist will be able to use part of the trail.
