This summer, Midpen is launching a pilot project for trail data collection at Rancho San Antonio and Skyline Ridge preserves. Midpen staff will be hiking approximately 37 miles of trail across these two preserves while measuring the physical terrain. The quantitative data collected will help us characterize the physical attributes of our trails, from steepness to tread width and obstacles. Ultimately, we hope to incorporate this information into trail descriptions, signage, and maps. Although this pilot project will take a few years to implement, each mile hiked is a step towards providing visitors with the information they need to make informed wayfinding and trail route decisions
