Hearst Ranch Conservation Easement and Coastal Trail Plan

RRM Design Group was the lead planner, trail consultant, and mapping specialist for the 82,000 acre Hearst Ranch conservation effort. RRM worked closely with biological and agricultural interests to explore multiple alignments for the California Coastal Trail trailheads and vertical access points. Our team coordinated with Coastal Conservancy staff and the American Land Conservancy to negotiate and plan for the management of resources. RRM’s master design consultation, GIS mapping, technical team coordination, trail planning, public information presentation, and entitlement advising and processing were instrumental in understanding the sensitivities and natural processes on the Hearst Ranch.
