Ridge trail gets funding

Paradise and Magalia get half-million dollar recreation grant

In a boost to hiking and biking on the Ridge, the Paradise Recreation and Park District (PRPD) announced it has received state funding to build a 20-mile loop trail.

The $507,392 award comes from the Recreational Trails and Greenways grant program, funded by Proposition 68. The loop will connect more than 15 miles of trails on public lands—local and federal—predominantly in and around Magalia. In a PRPD news release Monday (Jan. 11), District Manager Dan Efseaff (pictured) said the grant money “will help provide a backbone for a new trail system in the heart of Butte County.”

PRPD seeks public input for trail needs via an online survey.
