DRAFT Carmel Mountain / Del Mar Mesa Natural Resources Management Plan and Trail System

A Natural Resources Management Plan (NRMP) is proposed for the Carmel Mountain and Del Mar Mesa open space preserves, including a sub-regional trail system and associated community plan amendments. The NRMP covers an area of approximately 1,092 acres in the communities of Carmel Valley and Del Mar Mesa south of the State Route 56 freeway and adjacent to Los Penasquitos Canyon regional open space park.

The community plan amendments constitute amendments to various land use plans to revise the planned trail system in five communities. The areas affected are generally described as follows: the southern portion of Carmel Valley; much of Del Mar Mesa; the southeastern portion of Pacific Highlands Ranch; the southwestern portion of Rancho Penasquitos and the southern portion of Torrey Highlands. The purpose of the amendments is to incorporate a trail system developed as part of the Carmel Mountain / Del Mar Mesa Preserves Resource Management Plan, including establishing linkages to adjacent communities. Alignments within the revised trail system generally follow existing paths and access roads.

The proposal includes the following documents:
