| Design Goals | The challenge seeks to create innovative visions for a path leading to Trestles that: • Provide safe access between the drop-off point, the railroad, and the beach.• Restore and protect the coastal wetlands that have been damaged by foot traffic.• Provide opportunities for view points and education.• Provide solutions for accessibility, including ADA compliant facilities. The design should serve both surfers and visitors to the beach, restore wetlands that have been damaged by the path, preserve and augment vistas, and offer education about the history of the site and the coastal environment.
