A crew from the Los Padres Center in San Luis Obispo, CA are working to construct a trail in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Since its inception, the California Conservation Corps (CCC) has worked with California State Parks on trail construction and maintenance. In 2008, the Corps and California State Parks established the CCC-California State Parks Trail Program to ensure a coordinated effort to produce high-quality trails and provide Corpsmembers with training and skills development.

The CCC’s Statewide Trail Coordinator oversees the planning and implementation of specially funded trail projects throughout the state. Some of the projects require building trails that meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements. Previous work includes:

  • Improvements on an existing cemetery trail and picnic area at Fort Ross State Historic Park on California’s North Coast
  • Trail improvements on Broken Hill Trail at Torrey Pines State Reserve in Southern California
  • An accessibility project in the Año Nuevo State Park’s Picnic Area in the San Francisco Bay Area
  • Pfeiffer Falls Trail Reconstruction at Big Sur State Park on California’s Central Coast
  • Round Valley Campground Rehabilitation at Mount San Jacinto State Park in Southern California
  • ADA Trail Reconstruction at Madora Lake in Plumas-Eureka State Park in Northern California
