Yes, CA will not force a homeowner to provide an easement to a private party. While the state may exercise Eminent Domain a private person may not do so (even the state needs to provide fair compensation when forcibly taking a property).
A person can choose to allow a person an easement, and will typically charge for that - this is called an express easement. Because it deals with real property, pursuant to Civil Code 1624 it must be in writing as the Statute of Fraud pertains to it.
A licensed easement appraiser can help determine the fair value - however, one cannot be forced to grant an easement.
