Reedley Rail-Trail

Good trail with tough street crossings

August, 2020 by new_rhythm1

The trail is in a great location, traveling behind the town, along beautiful farms. There are plenty of old growth trees providing shade on a hot Central Valley day. The only draw back are the numerous street crossings. The ramps down and up the street are covered with the large yellow bumps you see on most walkways. As a skateboarder this makes crossing the streets difficult. Without the bumps this would be a 4 star trail easy.

Goshen Avenue Trail

Industrial Area Trail

March, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: Visalia, CA
Parking: Gravel lot in industrial area, west end of trail.
Trail Condition: Surface is fine and wide enough but not very appealing. Old and gray asphalt with a few old railroad track crossings at an angle…be careful crossing!
Signage: None.
Comments: The first 3 miles or so of the trail are in the industrial area of Visalia. The trail is between active track and busy Goshen Ave. Guessing the track is only occasional used, although a yard engine and a few cars did move along the track (in the industrial area) while we were on the trail. There are several intersection to cross, push button for crossing signal, at least these are spaced a good distance apart and didn’t feel like we were stopping every couple minutes for a cross road. The trail is mostly unappealing, straight and level. It is a rail-trail for sure. We encountered a single walker on the eastern end. This trail ok based trail condition, not pretty but not a bunch of cracks or roots, etc. Wouldn’t do this one again.

St. John's River Trail

Preferred Trail for the Area

March, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: Visalia, CA
Parking: Riverway Sports Park…lots of parking available, nice park.
Trail Condition: Wonderful asphalt trail condition, new. This is a very wide trail, wide enough for a vehicle to easily drive it and some were but not a problem.
Signage: Informational and regulatory signs but no directional signs, which aren’t really needed.
Comments: Started from the western end Riverway Sports Park. This trail is wide and nice new surface, very easy to ride two abreast with plenty of room. A couple of underpasses avoid having to cross any roads, these parts of the trail are concrete and also very wide and nicely done. After the first section of trail of being in the open and construction of a large housing development to the side it then gets into the trees and more shade. All along following beside the dry river bed. While a previous reviewer mentioned a “no-go zone”, there certainly is a part of the trail with many encampments along the river bed, we passed through during the afternoon and certainly felt safe enough. It is an unfortunate condition. If wanting to avoid this part of the trail, start at St. Johns Park off of Ben Maddox Way and travel east. From this park the trail is more scenic with a lot of trees and a few small parks along it. At the eastern end of the trail, the trail makes a small circle and implies start of this trail. We continued east into Cutler Park to the actual end, as mapped on Trail Link. On the trail we encountered walkers and only a couple bikers, this was during the middle of a weekday. Of the two trails we did in Visalia, this is the preferred trail.

St. John's River Trail

Bikeway on the trail

October, 2019 by tonygeo

Started from the Riverway Sports Park which was very nice with much greenery for an October day. We hit the trail and as expected this newly paved trail made its way into the surrounding desert scenery. How wonderful to have such a trail in this town. There are several options to side trails along the way. Now for the bad news... the no go zones. Sprawling homeless encampments all along the St John riverbed, laundry hung out on the trail benches to dry, garbage can rummaging all along the trails. Ride at your own risk

St. John's River Trail

Extension!

September, 2019 by bobmichalk

The west end of this trail was recently extended to reach Highway 63. Visitors can park in the Riverway Sports Park and walk to the trail head.

Reedley Rail-Trail

Great Short Trail

March, 2015 by dham

There is a Park and Ride lot just before W Manning Avenue crosses the railroad tracks. The west end of the trail is about a quarter mile west of here. There is a gazebo where you can look down onto the Kings River. The trail is paved with asphalt. The west half of the trail has benches along the way and has small street lights. There are several places where the trail crosses local streets. Many of these have lights in the pavement to warn the car traffic that someone is in the crosswalk. Most of these trail intersections also have roundabouts to slow trail-users and expedite movement at these crossings.

The west half of the trail (from the college to the east edge of town) has benches and lights. The east half does not have benches or lights. Also, some tree roots are pushing up the pavement. There are distance markers (every tenth of a mile) painted on the trail measured from west to east. There is a restroom located near the midpoint of the trail. There is nice landscaping along the trail. This a great trail for a short ride.

Goshen Avenue Trail

March 16 2014

March, 2014 by dham

The westerly segment of the trail near the industrial area is not maintained. It is covered with twigs and dirt that has been washed over the trail by rain storms. The areas of the trail near residential areas are maintained probably as a golf cart path. One golfer came toward me in his electric golf cart and took the entire width of the trail. He would not yield to me.

Trail now extends from Henderson Ave. to the Heritage Center across Olive Ave. past the South County Justice Center. Now with two drinking fountains and a new bench. Always enjoy including it in my jogging routes. Well paved.

Goshen Avenue Trail

Not All That Bad

March, 2013 by dham

I forgot to mention in my previous review that there is civilization on the other side of the roadway. Besides the golf course, there are shopping areas, including a STARBUCK's (approximately near the midpoint of the trail)! So if you want a break from your ride or walk, cross over to the south side of the road.

Goshen Avenue Trail

An Unknown Jewel in the Rough

March, 2013 by dham

If I hadn't checked this website, I would never had known that this trail existed. There are no signs anywhere marking this trail. There are no designated parking areas at the trailheads. The only sign is at what would be considered the western trailhead and it only says "Bike Lane - End". Its a level, smooth, old trail that runs parallel to a set of railroad tracks. There are no water faucets or restroom facilities and very few benches. I would not recommend this trail during the summertime since there are few trees for shade. The trees that do exist are small and old. They're mostly located in the middle third of the trail. Both ends of the trail have very few trees. There is no other landscaping. The western third of the trail is susceptible to flooding during the rainy season. There are areas where construction was required and damaged the trail. These areas were poorly patched. Very few people were encountered during my ride out to the west (less than 10). On my ride back to the car, I encountered about 15.
Even with all of these negative commments, I would recommend it during cool weather. It is an easy, level ride. (I rode a Trikke, a 3 wheel human powered vehicle). It needs some signs so that people would know that it exists.

Santa Fe Trail (Tulare)

Santa Fe Trail West bound

August, 2011 by oc3ddie

Bike ride going West bound . Started on East end.
Parking at gas station on Mooney blvd and Prosperity is very good. Beware there is private parking posted to the South of gas station. Stock up on goodies at the gas station if needed.

Travel a 1/8 Mile East on Prospertity to Trail entrance. I was delighted to much shade and nice settings. The trees are mature and provide plenty of coverage. Plenty of watering fountains and benches to enjoy the views.

The Mooney blvd crossing off the trail does not provide any crosswalk assistance. Use proper crosswalks when available. The trail crosses a few residental streets but do provide crosswalk markings. On a bike take extra caution, some of the cross walk areas have blind spots. I did spot a few Tulare police around the trail areas so do follow all signals and signs that are posted. Also beware of pedastrians and horses on the trail.

The trail is in excellent condition and provides plenty of space for different activities. Numerous Parks are located with in minutes off the trail. There is also some bussinesses and fastfood minutes off the trail. Fun trail for all ages.. Great Job Tulare and the old Santa Fe.
