Calavera Trail Coalition Works Toward Access

by The Editors on April 24, 2019

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has recently declared war on mountain bikers at Calavera a.k.a the Carlsbad Highlands Ecological Reserve, but a group of Carlsbad locals are hoping to get the land approved for multi-use recreation so decades of trail access can continue in a legal, open, and patrolled way. They’re calling themselves the Calavera Trail Coalition and they’ve built a website to help speed the flow of communication in the community. Here’s their mission statement:

The mission of the Calavera Trails Coalition is to Preserve Calavera for multi use for generations to come. We encourage sustainable management, ecosystem management, multi use recreation and preservation of open space for all to enjoy. We recognize the needs of people including those who have limited abilities or are unable to walk on the land. We support hikers, bikers, adaptive athletes, trail runners, families and wildlife. Sustainable management with enjoyment for all will Preserve Calavera.

For more info on the Calavera and how you can help, please visit the Calavera Trail Coalition website by clicking the link.
