The elevated wooden walkway composed of stairs and landings was designed with respect to the hydrologic function of the valley, and aims to safeguard the sensitive adjacent geological formation, and its native vegetation.
The pathway, with approximately 20 meters difference of level, meanders through the landscape like a snake, allowing singular experiences to pedestrian on their way down to the beach, related to the contrast of geological colours, and the succession of open and closed views to the ocean.
