Earlier this month a large number of coastsiders attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony recognizing the new addition of the California Coastal Trail System (CCT). The path is 1/3-mile long and begins at the south end of the Seymour Bridge in Half Moon Bay. Walkers, joggers, and bicyclists can enjoy the beautiful view atop local bluffs on this new stretch of path. The CCT is a large network of trails that extend along the 1200-mile coastline of California.
The project was completed at a cost of more than $500,000, which was funded by California Coastal Conservancy grants, San Mateo County, Coastside Land Trust, and Peninsula Open Space Trust. The new path addition was created to allow a formal trail that sits back away from the bluffs in an effort to help fight erosion and provide more safety to those utilizing it. In years past there were many informal trails that had been carved into the bluffs by local traffic which resulted in channelization that collected water. This water eventually spilled across the bluffs and resulted in erosion. There are also plans for plants to be added along the path that will help with absorbing rain water and erosion.
Interpretive signs have been installed along points of the trail that allow visitors to learn about regional wildlife.
