Placer County Department of Parks and Open Space is pleased to announce that the construction plans and specifications for the Hidden Falls Regional Park Trails and Open Space Expansion Project – Phase 1: Twilight Ride Access and Parking/Trailhead Project have been completed and are preparing for bid in anticipation of construction starting in summer 2023.
The project, which was approved by the Board of Supervisors in 2021, will provide access to approximately 8 miles of new trails through a new entrance off of Bell Road, as well as improved signage and wayfinding.
In addition to construction of the new parking lot/trailhead, staff are working to address management needs and neighbor concerns including vegetation management, emergency response, signage and wayfinding, and cooperation with Placer Land Trust.
The Hidden Falls Regional Park Trails and Open Space Expansion Project – Phase 1: Twilight Ride Access and Parking/Trailhead Project is an important step in providing improved access to one of Placer County’s most beloved outdoor spaces.
In the hope that construction can start in summer 2023, county staff will be asking the Placer County Board of Supervisors to approve the project construction plans at their meeting this Tuesday, March 28. If approved, county staff will then be authorized to advertise for construction bids.
