The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy approved a grant for $50,000 to the city of La Cañada Flintridge on Monday, according to a news release from Assemblymember Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge).

The trail connects hikers, bikers and equestrians in La Cañada Flintridge to Hahamongna Watershed Park in Pasadena.

Under the proposal Portantino presented Monday, SMMC would grant $50,000 to the city of La Cañada and the city would commit $60,000. Another $40,000 would come from Los Angeles County Measure A funds for a total of $150,000.

Portantino helped secure the funding to restore the Flint Wash Bridge in Hahamongna Park to begin work on shoring up the Flint Canyon Trail.

“When I heard that this trail was again facing problems I wanted to make sure the funds were there to fix and maintain it,” said Assemblymember Portantino.

“It’s a trail my daughters Sofia and Bella like to use and it lets our family and other families cross Pasadena and La Canada enjoy hiking in a fun and safe way. I am very grateful to my friends at the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy for seeing the merits of this project and providing the final funds for preservation,” Portantino said.
