Santa Clara River Trail (CA)

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Santa Clara River Trail follows its namesake waterway, one of Los Angeles County's last unchannelized rivers. The paved trail connects several of Santa Clarita's neighborhoods, including Canyon Country and Rancho Santa Clarita. It also links three other trails in the city, making it a useful recreation and transportation resource for residents and visitors alike.

Two disconnected segments of the trail are open, with only a short gap separating them in an area of the city seeing rapid residential development. Plans call for the two trail segments to be linked in the near future. Both open portions skirt housing developments, with a cluster of businesses reachable from the trail along Soledad Canyon Road.

Both the San Francisquito Creek Trail and South Fork River Trail can be accessed from the trail's start at McBean Parkway. Alternatively, join the Chuck Pontius Commuter Trail at Bouquet Canyon Road or Soledad Canyon Road.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Santa Clara River Trail is available at Bridgeport Park (23521 Bridgeport Lane), River Village Park (26401 Riverrock Way) and Discovery Park (27555 Canyon View Drive), as well as at the Camp Plenty Road Trailhead (intersection of Camp Plenty Road and Soledad Canyon Road) in Santa Clarita.

We explored this trail 22 April, 2009. There is a big, dirt parking lot at N34.41443 W118.54480 as Noel J. Keller pointed out. Approach the entrance slowly as it is easy to pass. If you go south from the parking lot you will come to a loop in about a ...read more
