LA HARBOR COASTAL TRAIL
LOS ANGELES HARBOR AREA- CALIFORNIA COASTAL TRAIL ACCESS ANALYSIS
San Pedro/ Wilmington, CA
Duvivier Architects was selected by the California State Coastal Conservancy to produce the Los Angeles Harbor Area – California Coastal Trail Access Analysis. This is an analysis of existing conditions and proposed recommendations for a continuous California Coastal Trail in the Los Angeles Harbor Area from the Palos Verdes Peninsula to the Los Angeles River.
The California Coastal Trail is a continuous public right-of-way along the California coastline. The trail is designed to foster appreciation and stewardship of the scenic and natural resources of the coast through hiking, biking and other complementary modes of non-motorized transportation.
This trail is meant to:
– Provide a continuous connection to the shoreline at appropriate intervals.
– Allow sufficient transportation access to encourage public use.
– Enhance the user experience of contributing to the protection of the natural environment and cultural resources while accesing beaches, scenic vistas, wildlife viewing areas, recreational or interpretive facilities, and other points of interest.
– Create linkages to other trail systems and urban population centers.

— Mary Small Deputy Executive Officer, State Coastal Conservancy
