Will the trails still have shade?

Yes. The proposed project area comes close to the paved trail on the east side but does not cross it.  Healthy native trees within a buffer of approximately 20-50 feet of the paved trail will be preserved.  The trail that is most impacted is the 0.3 miles of soft trail to the west of the paved trail. The project proposes to restore this trail or relocate as needed to expand the trail system.
