Long-term Stewardship, Conservation Land Purchases, and new Trails
This list of priority campaign links include purchasing and protecting the Strawberry Rock Trail, construction of the Little River Trail-CA Coastal Trail development project, significant public access / infrastructure improvement projects at Houda Point Beach Park and Luffenholtz Beach Park, and our sustainable stewardship fund campaign towards permanent funding for the twenty-plus properties that the Trinidad Coastal Land Trust owns and manages for biological, natural, educational, recreational and public benefits.
PROTECT STRAWBERRY ROCK
A proposed 45-acre conservation easement acquisition project that includes a beautiful creek-side redwood forest grove and permanent public forest trail to Strawberry Rock. Trinidad Coastal Land Trust, working with private landowner, is leading the effort to purchase and permanently protect this special culturally-significant place as a low-impact public recreation trail and conservation area in the redwood forest.
In 2015 the land trust acquired a parcel connecting Hammond Trail at Clam Beach to Trinidad's Scenic Dr., a missing link to the California Coastal Trail. Fundraising is needed for Phase 1 of the Little River trail, construction.
