Partners: Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District


PGA designed and led a team of consultants for a new trail head, which meant Mid-Peninsula Regional Open Space District could open their new 6100-acre La Honda Creek Preserve to the public. Considered by many to be the gateway to the San Mateo coast, the new trail head and parking provide access to trails through managed cattle pasture lands and forests with views to the coast and ridge-lines. Artfully nestled into the contours of the site, the parking area and trail head is visible only as you arrive at it. The trail head has preserve signage, a parking area with integrated storm-water management, a vault toilet and an improved approach road. Mature coast live oaks were protected during work on the road improvements; close coordination with the County Fire Marshall ensures safe access to the entire preserve is seamlessly provided.
