Santiago Creek Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Santiago Creek Trail is a scenic urban ride up a portion of Santiago Creek northeast from the Westfield MainPlace Mall to Collins Avenue in Orange. From Collins Avenue, the trail heads south to parallel E. Prospect Avenue then picks up E. Bond Avenue to Hewes Street, north to Villa Park Road and east again to end just north of E. Santiago Canyon Road along Cannon Street.

There are numerous trees shading the trail, making it a pleasant and scenic place for a ride, run or walk. In addition, a spur heads north from the main trail near E. Walnut Avenue, ultimately paralleling N. Wanda Road to a terminus at the bike lanes on Villa Park Road in Villa Park, a small city completely surrounded by Orange. This part of the Santiago Creek Trail follows a portion of the former Tustin Branch, a Southern Pacific rail line that serviced the local orange-packing industry between 1905 and 1969.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Santiago Creek Trail is available at W.O. Hart Memorial Park in Orange. From the Garden Grove Freeway (State Route 22), take Exit 15 (Glassell Street/Grand Avenue) in Orange. Drive north on S. Glassell Street just a few feet to the park entrance on the right.
