New online tool lets public help design SLO to Pismo Beach trail


A high-tech mapping tool designed by Google is being used as a way for the public to assist in the design of a multi-use trail that could one day connect San Luis Obispo to Pismo Beach.

The Edna - Price Canyon Trail is still in the early planning phases, and those behind the project are asking for the public's inpus with its layout.

The San Luis Obispo Council of Governments (SLOCOG) says the overall goal of the mapping tool process is to assist in preparing a Trail Master Plan.

"SLOCOG is currently in the planning phase for the development of the Edna Price Canyon portion of the Anza Trail system, which will connect San Luis Obispo to Pismo Beach along Highway 227 and Price Canyon Road," a report issued to the press explains. "This multi-use trail will promote alternative modes of transportation and offer recreational opportunities along this historic corridor."

There will also be two public workshops on the trail held between January and December, 2015.
