Coastal Trail to Open Saturday

The City of Fort Bragg’s newly constructed Coastal Trail will be officially opened tomorrow for public use. The trailhead and parking lot are located at the west end of Elm Street adjacent to Glass Beach. A new 8-foot wide paved trail extends along more than a mile of carefully restored coastal bluff drainage, soils and tender native seedlings with access to a stretch of coastline that has been behind the fences of the former mill site for more than a century. The trail will be open from dawn until dusk. Visitors are urged to not go beyond the security fencing because the area outside of it is owned by Georgia-Pacific. public access is NOT permitted beyond the fencing and trespassers will be cited.
