Another stretch of the San Diego River Trail in Santee is in planning stages and could be ready for public use in a year's time.
The Santee Review, the City of Santee blog, recently released more information about plans for a 1.3 mile public access trail along the river within the recently acquired Walker Preserve, an area north of the river, between Magnolia Avenue and the city's eastern border.
Here are a few facts from the blog post:
- Plans include a parking lot, trail head, information kiosk, trash bins and possibly a restroom- much like Mast Trail West.
- The trail is planned to be 14-feet wide and will follow an unpaved road used for sand mining in the past.
- The land was purchased in part to preserve wildlife in the area (three endangered bird species), so fencing and signs will be in place to preserve the habitat.
