The plan will build off the Great Redwood Trail Feasibility Study which was completed by State Parks under SB 1029. The Feasibility Study assessed the railroad infrastructure and the physical and environmental characteristics of the corridor. At this time there has been little direct community engagement around the Great Redwood Trail. Senator McGuire has held multiple well attended town hall meetings, but there has not been a systematic effort to engage the community in the trail planning. This is a key element to the development of the Great Redwood Trail as the trail spans 3 counties, 6 cities, the ancestral territory of many tribes, and has private property owners on either side of the right-of-way.
