CORBA has posted that a private property owner at the west end of Etz Meloy Motorway (a section of the Backbone Trail) at Yerba Buena Road has erected a new gate to deter the public from using the route. NPS has indicated that they expect this to be re-opened by the end of next year. A new alignment needs to be surveyed and built.
Trail News - Pt Mugu State Park is now open! Most trails suffered some damage but are passable. However, La Jolla Canyon trail remains closed. Upper Sycamore Trail (half a mile from bridge) is severely damaged and may be impassable for some time. Danielson Road (waterfall trail) and Upper Sycamore Trails are now hazardous for horses and should be avoided by equestrians until further notice. The Trails Council performed restoration work on the trails throughout the park. Check our Trail Work page if you want to help rebuild the trails in this area.

Trail Crew Accomplishments We spent the beginning part of the year cleaning up after an intense downpour obliterated trails and fire roads in Pt. Mugu State Park. This required numerous events, coordination of volunteers from concerned hikers, and bicyclists. We have developed new relationships with other interest groups - business such as the North Face and Tom's Shoes and with the U.S. Navy. Together we put in a lot of effort to make our trails a great place to recreate!
