Malibu Creek State Park: Change Yearling and Lookout Trails to Multi-Use
ALLOW ACCESS TO TRAILS CLOSED TO BICYCLES
We the undersigned support the California Department of Parks and Recreation’s (CDPR) recommended Change in Use (CIU) to allow bicycles to be ridden on the Yearling and Lookout Trails in Malibu Creek State Park. We appreciate the efforts of the Angeles District which determined through an extensive Change In Trail Use Survey that bicycles be allowed on these trails.
Mountain bicyclists requested this change of use to create off-pavement access from the Paramount Ranch area near the northwestern boundary of Malibu Creek State. This enhances bicycling opportunities and will provide better visitor circulation and a more enjoyable park experience.
Mountain bicycling is a safe, sustainable, health promoting activity that is a legitimate and appropriate use of trails in our parks. Surveys estimate that more than 40% of trail users are bicyclists, but there is still a very small percentage of singletrack trails available to us.
We support the Change of Use Process and the decision to open these trails.
