This is San Clemente Beach.
With sunsets like this, it's easy to see why 2.2 million people access San Clemente beaches annually.
Unfortunately, a rail corridor blocks access to these pristine beaches with more than 50 trains passing through the corridor each day.
This is how the City of San Clemente solved their access problems: the San Clemente Beach Trail.
One more example of how rails-with-trails are safe, provide access and act as corridors to the places people want to go.
Why wouldn't this work in your town?
