Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve is one of Midpen’s most beloved preserves. With a large network of trails and wonderful opportunities to explore redwood forests and connect with nature, parking demand often exceeds space during peak visitation hours, holidays and weekends.
This study is assessing what transportation demand management strategies could be appropriate for Purisima Creek Redwoods at a preserve-wide level.

Virtual Public Meeting Oct. 11 at 1 p.m.
Join the Midpen board members on our Planning and Natural Resources Committee for a public meeting to learn about and comment on the preferred trail alignment and conceptual parking area designs for the Purisima-to-the-Sea Trail. When built, this long-envisioned trail will link the California Coastal Trail to the existing trail network in Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve, including the Bay Area Ridge Trail.
The project is guided in part by the early results of a soon-to-be completed study of public access to Purisima Creek Redwoods Preserve that seeks proposed strategies for promoting greener modes of travel and better managing parking and visitation at this popular preserve. On August 2, Midpen’s PNR Committee held a public meeting to learn about the results of data collection and visitor survey efforts and to review the proposed transportation demand management strategies being recommended. The committee voted on the proposed strategies, which will now be incorporated into a draft report for further committee review at a public meeting later this year.
The October 11 public meeting agenda, staff report and zoom link will be available online on October 7.
