Click on each state below to see ideas on what can be done to improve the FCL.
When dreaming up the FCL I used CalTopo and other sources to find a route that mainly consisted of foot paths. If these did not exist I looked for old abandoned jeep trails. I made a large effort to stay away from major dirt roads and tried to avoided paved roads. With this philosophy the route I walked did meet most of this criteria but I obviously was not able to avoid all paved roads and major dirt roads. It is my goal to have the communities in the vicinity of the route find and build a trail that avoids paved roads and major dirt roads. There are also plenty of areas where easements across private land can be worked through with the land owner.
