Connecting the Little River Trail to the California Coastal Trail. Let's Break Ground!
The Land Trust’s ‘Little River Trail’ property is a 15-acre parcel above Moonstone Beach and the Little River estuary, at the south end of Scenic Drive. This property adjoins the Little River State Beach parcel and might soon be the future home to Humboldt County’s newest segment of the California Coastal Trail. We are seeking funding for a new trail and pedestrian/ bicycle/ equestrian bridge to be constructed across the Little River. This new trail will connect the existing Hammond Trail in McKinleyville to Trinidad’s scenic coast and public trails. Bicycles will finally be able to ride off the highway along the coast through Trinidad, from Patrick’s Point to Clam Beach. This proposed trail project has a detailed state-funded feasibility study complete and is supported by key partners such as the City of Trinidad, Humboldt County, Humboldt County Association of Governments, State Coastal Conservancy, CalTrans, the Trinidad Rancheria, other agencies and many outdoor trail enthusiasts. Thanks to Revolution Bikes for sponsoring our bicycle raffle fundraiser.
We need more public support, political support and a state/federal program grant.View the Trail Feasibility Study on our website. You can support our work to complete this project by making a donation to the Little River Trail fundraising campaign.
