[ARCHIVED] Temporary Trail Closures in Portuguese Bend Reserve

A headline above the City of Rancho Palos Verdes logo says Temporary Trail Closures.

Based on recommendations by Cotton Shires and Associates (the City's geologist), out of an abundance of caution, the City of Rancho Palos Verdes has temporarily closed several trails in the Portuguese Bend Reserve due to the potential for hazardous natural conditions associated with increased land movement that has been observed in the greater Portuguese Bend Landslide area.

See map below depicting trail closures.

Portuguese Bend Reserve (Rev. 10.12.23)These trails are closed until further notice for public safety due to the potential for hazardous natural conditions associated with the active landslide, such as land movement, sink holes, unstable trails and surfaces, erosion, steep cliffs, and falling rocks.

The City is working with geologists and its land co-managers, including the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy, and state and federal wildlife agencies, on solutions to restore public access, ensure public safety, and protect natural resources. 

Thank you for your patience. For the latest updates on the status of trail closures, visit rpvca.gov/trailalerts.
