Document Description
The project is a 7.5-mi multi-use bicycle and pedestrian trail extending along the railroad corridor from Wilder Ranch State Park on the south to Davenport on the north in unincorporated Santa Cruz County. The project would include a paved path with striping, parallel unpaved path and shoulder, and parking improvements with trail connections at three locations along the alignment. The EIR evaluates the proposed project (coastal side) and alternative 1 (trail only), at an equal level of detail. The proposed project would locate the new multi-use trail almost exclusively on the coastal side of the existing railroad tracks, largely consistent with the Monterey Bay Sanctuary Scenic Trail Network Master Plan. Under alternative 1, the railroad tracks would be removed, and the trail would be located on the rail bed.
