We are excited to share that the Rock Point Trails Plan to restore and upgrade the walking paths on the Rock Point peninsula is finished! The plan included construction and improvements on many trails, including popular trails to Sunset Cliff, The Point, and Eagle Bay. Timber and Stone, LLC completed the trail work, adding wooden boardwalks and stone steps, and widening gravel paths. These improvements will make the trails more accessible, preserve the land from erosion, and protect local plant species. Additionally, they added more signs to guide public access.
