Pacifica Tribune Letters to the Editor, 12/4/12. "Devil's Slide Coastal Recreation Area" by Jim Sullivan
|Biking trail from Pacifica?|
My added notes to the free shuttle plug is this. We need a non-highway shoulder multiuse trail from behind Linda Mar Ace hardware that will allow bicyclists+walkers a way to access Devil's Slide.
Why this option wasn't part of Caltrans mitigation obligations leaves me (almost) speechless. This recreational trail will draw tourists to the eateries+market at Pedro Point, bringing the much-needed out of town monies Dan speaks of.
Without this trail, I don't see much of a difference to what we have now -- folks passing through on their way to somewhere else. The communities to the south have been diligently parceling together a nonmotorized trail to access the future Devil's Slide walking-pedaling route. This multi-use trail up from Linda Mar will add tremendous access value to the Devil's Slide rec area, just observe the amount of trails users along Linda Mar Beach, Rockaway, Mori Point, Promenade and the Pier and you will see my point. We in Pacifica need this non-motorized trail to be in the chute now!"
Reference - Devil's Slide Coast Recreation Area. "Devil’s Slide Coast public lands are located between Pacifica and Half Moon Bay, about 15 miles south of San Francisco and 30 miles North of Santa Cruz, accessible via Highway 1."
