An environmental summary by the ENVS 560/L Watershed Systems class at CSUMB.


The Condor Trail is a primitive recreational thru-hiking route intended to connect the northern and southern portions of California through a series of smaller existing trails. It is currently incomplete but will span 400 miles in length upon completion [1]. The trail is intended to highlight the unique characteristics of the Los Padres National Forest and California's Central Coast Region and will primarily go through rugged wilderness and backcountry areas of Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and Monterey Counties.


The Condor Trail is intended to highlight and support the protection of the California Condor while providing recreational opportunity to the public.

Legal Status

The Central Coast Heritage Protection Act was introduced on May 21, 2014 and if this Act becomes law the Condor Trail will be congressionally designated as the Condor National Recreation Trail.


The Condor Trail Association was created and organized in 1996 and is a 501c3 non-profit organization who are working to establish the Condor Trail.
