Vista Point Planning and Design

Caltrans maintains an inventory of approximately 135 vista points throughout the state highway system, places where motorists can safely view scenery or park and relax. Landscape architects provide for the design of vista points and their related facilities including walkways, interpretive displays, railings, benches, interpretive information, trash receptacles, monuments and other facilities, designed to be accessible to all persons.

For more information about Vista Points see: Highway Design Manual, Topic 904 (PDF) , Vista Point Standards and Guidelines
