Loma Linda Works to Preserve Local Trails

December 2007 - The Loma Linda City Council this

month agreed to work with private landowners to

acquire land in the hills to connect its trail network.

The city owns about 1,000 acres at the top and

bottom of the hills, but a large segment in the

middle is in private hands. Besides protecting land

it already owns, the city plans to seek easements

and rights-of-way from private owners in order to

complete the trail system, which would stretch from

about Reche Canyon to San Timeteo Canyon.
