Konocti Regional Trails Update

LAKE COUNTY, CA  —  On Tuesday, February 18, 2014 at 9:45am, County of Lake Trails Coordinator, Gigi Stahl, will be presenting an update to the Board of Supervisors on the progress of the Konocti Regional Trails Team over the last eight months, as well as the action plans for 2014.

Konocti Regional Trails (KRT) is a collaborative effort between County departments, local, state, and federal entities engaged in recreation and preservation, and local trail user groups of wildlife enthusiasts, hikers, cyclists, dog walkers, equestrians, and kayakers. The group is focused on expanding multi-use recreational opportunities within Lake County and surrounding areas.

The update will include outreach efforts with regional and state agencies, local organizations, and citizens groups to support and/or participate in the effort to build the trails system.  It will also include marketing efforts to build the KRT brand, leverage outdoor recreation in Lake County for tourism programs, and expand awareness of existing Lake County trails with potential destination linkages. Lastly, Ms. Stahl will present the prioritized concept trails for 2014, the long-term vision for some trail systems, and introduce the KRT project teams tasked to implement the trail plans, guided by the KRT Master Plan.

The County’s trail planning efforts are funded in part from a portion of transient occupancy tax in prior years that was allocated to pathways development.

Lake County residents interested in learning about outdoors recreation and the regional trails system are encouraged to attend.
