Coast to Crest Trail project approved

By Joe Tash

The 22nd District Agricultural Association board, which oversees both the Del Mar Fairgrounds and the Horse Park to the east of Interstate 5, has approved a project that will clear the way for a segment of the Coast to Crest Trail to be built through the Horse Park property.

The board voted unanimously at its Jan. 10 meeting to authorize the reconfiguration of turf rings at the Horse Park which are used for horse shows.  The project will open up space along the San Dieguito River, where a half-mile section of trail will run through the property.

Work on the reconfiguration will begin in the fall to minimize disruption of equestrian events this summer.  The San Dieguito River Park joint powers authority has already begun work on a segment of the trail to the west of the turf rings, said Susan Carter, deputy director of the JPA.

When completed, the Coast to Crest trail will run about 55 miles from Julian to the beach at Del Mar.  Currently, some 35 miles of the trail have been completed, Carter said.

The Horse Park segment of the trail will be constructed with a $350,000 state grant.  A portion of the 22nd DAA’s cost of reconfiguring the turf rings will be reimbursed from the grant proceeds, Carter said.
