SECTION 5050-5055



5050.  This article shall be known and may be cited as the
Collier-Keene State Hostel Facilities Act.



5051.  The Legislature finds that a substantial number of
Californians bicycle and walk for recreational enjoyment and that,
given safer routes and more suitable accommodations, would choose
such travel means to reach and enjoy scenic areas and recreation
facilities throughout the state. The Legislature finds that it is in
the public interest to provide means for bicyclists and hikers to
reach safely, and utilize conveniently, units of the state park
system and local and regional parks and recreation areas. The
Legislature specifically finds that the existing mix of motor
vehicles and bicycles on the highways of the state creates hazards to
motorists and cyclists alike and demands immediate remedial action.



5052.  As used in this article, unless the context clearly requires
a different meaning:
   (a) "Hostel facility" means a supervised overnight lodging or
sleeping accommodation provided primarily for use by persons,
including bicyclists and hikers, arriving at state park system units
and local and regional parks and recreation areas. Hostel facilities
shall include sleeping areas for individuals or groups, water,
washrooms, sanitary facilities, and means by which the users of
hostel facilities may prepare their own meals.
   (b) "Recreational trail" means a pathway situated and constructed
so as to provide safe and convenient means for persons, including
bicyclists, hikers, and horsemen, to travel to and between state park
system units other than by motor vehicle.



5053.  (a) The department may provide hostel facilities in any unit
of the state park system where consistent with the general
development plan for such unit, and may provide for hostel facilities
in the general plan for any unit; provided, however, that no hostel
facility may be provided in any unit classified as a state
wilderness, natural preserve, or state reserve.
   (b) The department may also provide hostel facilities at any park
or recreation area under the jurisdiction of any local or regional
public agency if such agency enters into an agreement with the
department for the care, maintenance, and control of such facilities
at the agency's expense.



5054.  The department may acquire land for, develop, and maintain
recreational trails to and between units of the state park system.



5055.  Except as provided in Section 18930 of the Health and Safety
Code, the director shall adopt such rules and regulations as are
necessary to administer the provisions of this article.
