The Iron Horse Trail

The Iron Horse Trail

Rails-to-Trails Bar None.

This 1-mile landscape project captures the spirit of the Iron Horse Trail by using authentic rail artifacts in the form of seating, sculpture, and shade arbors to create an entirely new and contemporary experience along the trail.  Sculptural, massive pieces of reclaimed wood will create comfortable seating areas amidst generous shade trees, while custom designed and painted birdhouses delight birds and bicyclists.

With a 96” stormwater pipe, a fiber optic line, and a high-pressure petroleum pipeline running through the site, BASE collaborated closely with East Bay Regional Parks, Kinder Morgan, GST Telecom, and Contra Costa County to manage the design of this project.
