What and Why?
The project is to create a significant linkage in the 1,200 mile long California Coastal Trail by constructing a 3-mile trail along Highway 1 in Bodega Bay that will improve the safety of pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists.
This trail from Keefe Avenue through the town of Bodega Bay to Bird Walk Coastal Access Trail will allow users to experience the village atmosphere of Bodega Bay, the beautiful Sonoma County coast, historic harbor, and picturesque waterfront.
The trail is being developed in four sections. The 1.1 mile segment of the Coastal Prairie Trail has been completed and opened to the public in August 2016.
The next priority is constructing the 0.32 mile Coastal North Harbor Trail and then the 0.37 mile trail segment paralleling Smith Brothers Road. The last segment that will be constructed is the 1 mile Coastal Harbor Trail that starts at Eastshore Road, continues on County tideland, and connects to Smith Brothers Road.

Funding from the California Coastal Conservancy has been secured to complete the environmental work, engineering design, and regulatory permit applications for the Coastal North Harbor Trail Segment. These tasks will be completed by Spring 2018 prior to securing funds for construction.
