It's the grand unveiling of the completion of the Backbone Trail from the City of Los Angeles to the Pacific coast in Ventura County.
The 67-mile Backbone Trail has been a more-than-40-year labor for dedicated volunteers, elected officials, parks agencies, and generous philanthropists. The public has acquired more than 180 parcels to complete the route. When finished, the trail will form the spine of a 500-mile network of trails that connects the residents of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties to their public lands.
The trail has been nominated for designation as a National Recreation Trail. If selected, the designation will be announced by the Secretary of the Interior on or before June 4, 2016.
The celebration will be held Saturday June 4 from 9 AM to noon at the Will Rogers State Historic Park in Pacific Palisades, California.
