Santa Susana Mountains Trails Master Plan
Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation
Los Angeles County, CA
The Santa Susana Mountains Trails Master Plan Study Area encompassed 24,122 acres in the northwestern unincorporated area of the County of Los Angeles. The Master Plan is intended to guide future trail development in the Northwest San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys and serve as an element of the County General Plan. In addition to the Master Plan, Sapphos Environmental, Inc. prepared technical reports to evaluate the existing conditions and trail planning issues related to aesthetics, air quality, biological resources, cultural resources, geology and soils, hydrology and water quality, noise, and traffic. ArcGIS was used to inventory and evaluate gaps in existing trail routes, access to points of interest, and potential connections to regional trails and greenways in consideration of property ownership and sensitive resources identified in the technical reports.
