Project: Corral Canyon Trailhead Improvements

Description: Capital improvements to Corral Canyon Trailhead. The Sara Wan Trailhead at Corral Canyon provides parking and access to the popular Corral Canyon Park and to Malibu beaches and is one of the most highly used public parking lots on the coast. The trailhead has always been popular and the amount of use has strained the parking and visitor-serving amenities. The grant is used to plan and implement minor improvements to the parking lot and trailhead amenities. Existing facilities at the trailhead include a parking lot with approximately 14 parking spots, a basic picnic area, fencing, native plantings, portable toilet, kiosk display, benches, basic signage and seasonal access to the County-operated Dan Blocker State Beach. MRCA proposes to modify the parking lot layout to maximize the number of parking spaces, upgrade the accessible parking per current building code, and separate pedestrian and vehicular traffic for better safety. Other possible improvements, depending on cost and impact of circulation changes, include modifying the picnic area and replacing signage. New regulatory signs will be bilingual (English/Spanish). Any planted areas disturbed by the improvements will be replanted with appropriate coastal native species. The improvements will restore, protect, and preserve the natural resources of the site and its watershed by providing the opportunity for visitors to use the site in ways that respect the resource. These capital improvements will enhance the utility and safety of the existing trailhead and will contribute to a more enjoyable user experience.
