Following the successful opening of lower La Honda Creek Open Space Preserve in Winter 2017, Midpen is currently working on conceptual designs for the Red Barn area of the Preserve. This second phase of public access will include new trails, a parking area, and amenities such as a restroom, a trailhead and interpretive information.

Central to the design plan are the goals of reflecting the rural character of the area, protecting scenic views to and from the site and developing a new destination to support educational opportunities for visitors. In preparation for the design and implementation of the next phase Midpen has completed technical studies, developed conceptual design alternatives, met with stakeholders, held an open house in 2017 and presented the latest design alternative to the Board of Directors at public meetings in March and May. Additional public meetings will be held in 2018.
