This photo looking south from the Elm and Main Street intersection makes me think about the presentation I heard last night at the Fort Bragg City Council meeting.
“Reconnecting to our Coast – Planning the Coastal Trail from Noyo Bay to Pudding Creek” – Summary of the Design Workshop, Community Outreach Effort, and Planning Process; Presentation by the Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance Program of the National Park Service.
I learned it takes a lot of money and planning to make a trail. So far “input” indicates the trail should be “environmentally friendly” and “recreationally positive”. As for actual trail building, that won’t occur until sometime in the future.

I also learned the Pudding Creek Haul Road Trestle Project hit a snag. The pilings at the north end need to be replace. Another million added to the budget. Estimated completion date revised from July, 2006 to September, 2007.

Walking and gawking is getting expensive!
