Description Suggest an Edit

The trail's western end point is near the California State University campus and proceeds through several city parks with water and restroom facilities. The eastern end traverses through working oil fields. Watch for wildlife that inhabit this area, such as roadrunners and bobcats. Just east of the eastern terminus is Hart Park, a very nice county park. It is accessible along county roads with good shoulders.

This is not a "rail-trail."

Parking and Trail Access

Access is available from several city parks off of Truxtun Avenue west of Hwy 99. Trail parking is also located on the north side of the river on Manor Street.

Lots of different scenery for a Easterner such as myself to see. We took pieces of this trail and connected them to the Round the Mountain trail and Panorama Drive sections to coble together a convenient ride. Trail is well kept and the uphills are manageable. more
