Here's the California Conservation Corps team, http://www.ccc.ca.gov/Pages/default.aspx, that built the new trail overlooking the north beach at the Piedras Blancas Viewpoint. They did a great job. Mike Anderson, in the light tan shirt at left, is the project manager. The trail required some special engineering to cope with water running off Highway 1 and from the ranch on the east side of the highway.

It was funded by the California Coastal Trail grant program of the California Coastal Conservancy and money from the National Park Service Land and Water Conservation Fund. Read more: http://www.sanluisobispo.com/2010/12/06/1396919/a-new-view-of-the-elephant-seals.html#ixzz17k8D1ADI.
