About the Project

The trail will enable people to safely commute by bicycle or foot from El Granada to the south end of Miramar and will eventually serve as a connection to the Naomi Patridge trail within Half Moon Bay.  The trail will also include a connection to El Granada Elementary School in order to provide a safe route to school for students who live in the Miramar area.
