Most of the Ralston Creek Trail follows its namesake waterway, winding through several parks, neighborhoods, and open areas. On its western end, the trail becomes gently hilly and passes scenic Tucker Lake and Blunn Reservoir. A highlight of the route is a trek over the spectacular Gold Strike Park Pedestrian Bridge on the trail's eastern end, which spans 400 feet and is supported by suspended cables.
Parking and Trail Access
The best parking access is midway at Oak Park on Oak St., north of Ralston Rd.
Good family outing trail. Gradual uphill as you head west. From Violet St near west end to the lakes at the west end of the trail is fairly steep grade. I suggest stopping at Violet St. Still a good 10 mile trail with lots of variety of scenery.
