San Diego River Trail Segment - El Monte Road to Historic Flume and Lake Jennings Campground Connection Project – Mitigated Negative Declaration
The Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) and Initial Study for the San Diego River Trail Segment – El Monte Road to Historic Flume and Lake Jennings Campground Connection Project (project) are now available for public review and comment. The project involves construction of a parking area, trailhead and approximately two miles of a 4-foot wide multi-use trail for hiking, biking and equestrian users on property owned by the Helix Water District. The trail corridor will begin at El Monte Road, traverse a hillslope and follow the bench cut of a portion of the historic San Diego Flume alignment, and connect to Lake Jennings Campground.
The project is located south of El Monte County Park at 14003 El Monte Road, which is less than one mile northeast of the intersection of El Monte Road and Lake Jennings Park Road in the unincorporated community of Lakeside in San Diego County, California (APNs 395-022-09, 395-022-10, 395-140-01 and 391-061-01).
