Location: La Honda

Project Type:

Partners: Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District


PGAdesign designed and led a team of consultants for a new trailhead marking the opening to the public of the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District’s new 6100-acre La Honda Creek Preserve. Considered by many to be the gateway to the San Mateo coast, the new trailhead and parking provide access to trails through managed cattle pasture lands and forests with views to the coast and ridgelines. Artfully nestled into the contours of the site, the parking area and trailhead are visible only upon arrival. The trailhead features Preserve signage, a parking area with integrated stormwater management, a vault toilet, and an improved approach road. Mature coast live oaks were protected during construction by carefully integrating them into the new design’s grades. Close coordination with the County Fire Marshall ensures safe access to the entire preserve.
