San Luis Obispo Railroad Safety Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

Although less than two miles, the San Luis Obispo Railroad Safety Trail provides convenient access from the city’s southeast neighborhoods to the local Amtrak station and downtown. The paved rail-with-trail parallels active Union Pacific freight and Amtrak passenger lines, and provides a pedestrian crossing over the railroad tracks at Osos Street. On the west side of the railroad tracks, a great attraction to visit is the San Luis Obispo Railroad Museum (1940 Santa Barbara Avenue), just a block south of the railroad overpass.

Also, about midway along the trail, a spur runs up to Boulevard Del Campo, where travelers can take a side trip to reach Sinsheimer Park and the baseball stadium.

Parking and Trail Access

Street parking is available at the end of Boulevard Del Campo. Parking is also available in nearby Sinsheimer Park (900 Southwood Drive).
