EA - Environmental Assessment
Present Land Use
Agriculture; existing parks and recreation
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 EA evaluates the Proposed Project Alternative and the No Action Alternative. 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.
