San Clemente just opened the city’s new trail in the Marblehead residential development. Mayor Chris Hamm cut the ribbon on April, 15, while telling residents that there is more infrastructure projects to come.
Hugging one of the most beautiful shorelines in Southern California, is a new four-mile trail that rests on a bluff above Pacific Coast Highway and Pico Avenue. Vista Hermosa is now connected to the 5 freeway, allowing residents living near the exit to have easy access to Pacific Coast Highway.
The trail is part of a huge master-planned spread of shopping outlets and four new neighborhoods that are being built in the community.

The trails are seemingly complete, aside from blank plaques that will soon provide information about a particular terrain, or for example, the wetland habitat that is being developed as a storm water collection basin, according the San Clemente Times.
This is just the beginning of the new facilities coming to northern San Clemente. Two out of the five new parks should start construction soon, and with smooth sailing should be open by July or August. Vista del Sol (formerly Sunset Park) and Canyon View Park will be accessible to the public but will be managed by Sea Summit Homeowner’s Association.
