The trail is not actually on railroad property, but is immediately
adjacent to an active Southern Pacific rail right-of-way and
crosses an active U.S. Navy rail facility. Three transportation corridors run along Hoover Street between Bolsa Avenue and the Garden Grove Freeway; the four-lane street itself, the tracks of an active railroad, and a paved rail-trail.
There are no restaurants located along the route, but a neighborhood grocery store is on the corner of Trask Avenue and Hoover Street. Restaurants and supermarkets can be found elsewhere in Westminster.
There are rest rooms at either trailhead, nor are there any along the trail.
