Temescal Ridge Trail Reopened

From ActCoastal

Month April
Year 2023
Summary On Thursday, the Commission approved a cease and desist order for Coastal Act violations at the Temescal Ridge Trailhead in Los Angeles County. Violations included locking of a gate that blocked public access to a public parking lot and restrooms, failure to transfer the property to an entity for public use as required by a CDP and failure to maintain the visitor serving facilities. The Commission acted on a related enforcement item in May 2022. This action resolves the violation with the current property owner and orders the property to finally be reopened to the public.

Outcome Description Commissioners unanimously approved the cease and desist orders and the violator consented to the agreement.
Why You Should Care Enforcing permit conditions, especially those that require public access, is integral to the Coastal Act’s mission of maximizing public access to and along the coast. The Temescal Ridge is a scenic trail in the Santa Monica Mountains and an important resource for those looking for fresh air and breathtaking coastal views.
