This linear trail through the northern sections of bike friendly Chico runs on the abandoned Sacramento Northern RR right-of-way. The trail runs from the Airport to Esplanade and 11th Ave. Bike lanes are avialable on Oleander and Arcadian to access downtown and the university. The Sacramneto Northern ran commuter service from the northern Sacramento valley through Sacramento and into the Bay Area. Various sections of the right-of-way have been converted to trail use.
