OC PARKS TO LAUNCH TEMPORARY TRAIL USE DESIGNATION PILOT PROJECT
Visitors at Aliso and Wood and Laguna Coast wilderness parks, as well as Santiago Oaks Regional Park will begin to see signs announcing the new temporary pilot project.
OC Parks is currently engaged in a temporary trail use designations pilot project that we hope will improve user experience and alleviate trail user conflict and congestion. This project involves changes to existing trail use designations on select trails at Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park, Laguna Coast Wilderness Park, and Santiago Oaks Regional Park.
This project has been shared at OC Parks advisory body public meetings and supported by the OC Parks Commission, Trails Subcommittee, and Coastal Greenbelt Authority.
The project is start date is June 1, 2021 and will be periodically evaluated to assess trail and user data resulting from trail use changes.
Researchers will be onsite at the pilot project trails in May and around the end of July/early August to collect user feedback for use in a scientific survey, which takes about 5 minutes. If you are approached, please participate in the survey as your feedback will be used in data analysis for this project.
