County Parks is the lead agency for the California Coastal Trail (CCT) in the Midcoast. The County has secured funding to plan the CCT connection at the missing link (400 ft of danger) at Surfer's Beach, and is coordinating the project with property owner (CalTrans) and jurisdiction (HMB & CCC).

County Parks 2008 Midcoast Action Plan (MAP) projects are funded by the Midcoast "Park Mitigation Fee". The fee, established in 2003, on all new and remodel construction, is to be used for Midcoast parkland development and improvements - not operations and maintenance. Midcoast Parks Development Fund income/expenditures report thru 2012 is here. The Midcoast Parks & Recreation Committee (MPRC), headed by County Parks, has guided the implementation of the MAP. Contact Sam Herzberg with questions or to get on the email notification list.
