Welcome to the City of San Jacinto’s website for the San Jacinto Trails Master Plan. Through funding from a Sustainable Communities Grant awarded by the State of California Department of Transportation, along with the use of Development Impact Fees, local cash match and by third party in-kind matching, the City will develop a Trails Master Plan.
Nestled against the Lakeview Mountains and the foothills of Mt. San Jacinto, the San Jacinto Valley is abundant with scenic vistas and natural resources including a 10,000 acre San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Mystic Lake, and Potrero Creek Conservation Unit, and the Historic De Anza Trail along the San Jacinto River. San Jacinto’s terrain is relatively flat, making it an ideal destination for street and mountain bike cycling, walking, hiking and horseback riding. The proposed Trails Master Plan would identify opportunities to connect these trails to parks, schools and neighborhoods.
San Jacinto’s Trails Master Plan will provide a strategic framework for the future development of a fully connected, multi-use, non-motorized trails network. Planning efforts will focus on improved safety for travelers; ensure equitable transportation options for all ages and ability; increase access to public transit, schools, employment, and city amenities, as well as improve public health and residents’ overall quality of life. The San Jacinto Trails Master Plan will express the vision and culture of this growing community; align with regional non-motorized transportation and recreational plans, and address sustainable community planning goals and objectives.
You are invited to participate in this exciting process by attending community workshops and providing input towards the development of the Trails Master Plan.
