Rancho Palos Verdes Trails Plan Review

15 additional trails to bicycles

After a long and drawn-out process, the Rancho Palos Verdes City Council on Tuesday voted to approve most of staff recommendations to open additional trails in the Palos Verdes Nature Preserve to bicycles.

The council still has concerns about user conflict and obeying trail designations. CORBA PV has offered to form an informational bike patrol, start a loaner bell program, participate in a trails committee, help design better signage. CORBA PV already has an active trail repair crew. If you wish to volunteer for any of these activities, please contact us at
