The master planning process for the California Coastal Trail through the North Coast kicks off with a public meeting Wednesday.
The California Coastal Trail is a network of public trails for walkers, bikers, equestrians, wheelchair riders and others along the 1200-mile California coastline.
In San Luis Obispo County, major segments or the trail are already in place, including Fiscalini Ranch Preserve, along the Moonstone Beach Boardwalk and Leffingwell Landing in Cambria, on Morro Beach and a 9-mile stretch of shoreline in Pismo Beach, Grover Beach and Oceano.
People should plan to attend the meeting and speak up “if you want to be involved, want to add anything” to the plan or join the conversation about where the trail will go, according to Muril Clift, president of the Cambria Community Services District Board of Directors.
For details about the meeting and trail plans, call the San Luis Obispo Council of Governments at 788-2104, or download a PDF at http://library.slocog.org/PDFs/Planning/Byway/CCT_Preferred_Route_2007.pdf.
The first of several planned public sessions on the North Coast begins 7 p.m. Wednesday in the multipurpose room of Cambria Grammar School, 3223 Main St.
