New Path to Connect San Luis Obispo to Pismo

New Path to Connect San Luis Obispo to Pismo

A new Class 1 multi-use path is being proposed that would connect San Luis Obispo to Pismo Beach. A Class 1 designated path is separated from any road traffic. The path, which is comparable to the Bob Jones City to the Sea Bike Trail in Avila Beach and would be open to cyclists, walkers and runners.

It would extend from SLO through Edna Valley and down Price Canyon out to Pismo Beach. The extension of the so-called De Anza trail is thought to be the original route taken by Juan Batista De Anza when he traveled through California visiting the state's missions in the 1770s. To execute the proposed path property owners along the path would need to either grant easements to the city or sell their property.

The path could take more than ten years to build even if the property owners along the path decide to move forward. SLO City Planning Commissioner Eric Meyer, who has proposed the route, is working now to get local government agencies to commit to a plan for the path. Other planned multi-use paths in the County that are a little further along in the process include the Bob Jones trail extension, connecting SLO to the existing Bob Jones trail. It's currently going through environmental review and the connector from Morro Bay to Cayucos which may start the coastal permitting process within the year.

All exciting news!
