Santa Fe Trail (Visalia)

Nice trail into downtown Visalia

June, 2021 by qd5rwxzxh6

My wife and I ride this trail quite often and enjoy the easy access from our part of town to downtown Visalia. The trail is on a north/south axis and is paved and well signed. It stops a couple of blocks short of downtown but the road is wide and an easy 3 block bike ride or walk to the east side of downtown, not far from the transit station.

Clovis Old Town Trail

Nice, Wide, Clean Trail

April, 2021 by tucker.furguy

I must admit, I put off cycling on this trail due to the tunnels along the way. I have a single speed 3-wheeler and any type of incline is a struggle, much more so than a single speed 2-wheeler. But, I have a friend who rides it regularly and enjoys it, that, and some of the pictures of the trail on the website are splendid and inviting. So, I included it with another trail I love and ride regularly. It was the first time I totaled over 20 miles in one day’s ride and I thoroughly enjoyed it, for the most part. I embraced courage and tackled every tunnel on the trail - there and back. I did notice that most, if not all the tunnels have a workaround trail that take you up to the street where from there you can cross the street and reconnect with the trail after the tunnel.

The first time I cycled the trail, I went from Alluvial and Peach to the end of the trail at roughly Dakota and Clovis Ave. I drove around the neighborhood I had once lived in and returned to the trail. What I found disrupting was having to stop at all the many streets within the Old Town area of Clovis and the rest of the trail in the main city of Clovis. I can see why other riders have made adverse comments regarding this issue. So, when taking the trail now, I will begin at one of three entrances and end each time when I come to Sierra Ave, at which point I turn around and go back. So, starting at Shepherd near Willow Ave. At Nees near N. Timmy Ave. Or, at Alluvial and Peach Ave. Stopping at Sierra Ave and turning around.

What I really like about the trail is that it is wide and flat. There are no tree roots popping up which make for a very rough ride. The trail is clean and on each side are trees and underbrush for much of the distance. When moving northward, the trail turns into more of a very wide sidewalk that runs through some housing areas, industrial areas and open country fields. Once you get to Shepherd Ave you are gifted a beautiful view of the nearby hills and the more distance mountains, along with some farmland, orchards, and vineyards - not yet victim to the swiftly spreading disease of the rapid building of houses, apartments and condominiums.

Along the path, you do have to stop at major streets. Some have street lights or stop signs. Others have added a button you can push that illuminates the path so that motorists know you are waiting to cross and they will stop and wait for you. The tunnels can be rather exciting! Going down one is a rush - an E ticket ride. Going back up though can be a workout if you aren’t riding a bike with gears. What I find helpful is to begin fast pedaling as soon as you are able before beginning your ascent. With the momentum the downward trail gives you, it is easier than you would think, however, those last few feet can be a real workout. The one thing I wish Clovis had done would have been to install lights inside the tunnels that would stay on 24/7. It is very dark, especially down the longer tunnels and you cannot always discern what or who is in the tunnel, which could make for a serious accident were you to run into a person or animal, or over broken glass, large rocks, or prickly tree limbs.

A nice feature, along the path that lies in the major area of Old Town Clovis and central Clovis, are emergency phones built into lamp-like poles - there is at least one that is not in working order, but many that are.

Each time I have been on the trail, it was not heavily trafficked and when you do come up on others, the path is wide enough to safely pass one another. I have seen folks walking their dogs, running, cycling skate boarding, walking, and using scooters. Not much wildlife on the trail, with the exception of birds, ground squirrels and red and gray tree squirrels.

If you continue north on the trail, you eventually will hook up with the Fresno Rail Trail and it can take you all the way to Woodward Park and end on Friant Rd.

Clovis Old Town Trail

GOOD FOR FAMILY BICYCLING

April, 2021 by jaycee7611

Love the surroundings every time I go because it’s very clean and great breakfast spots in old town. I will say though when going in tunnels it’s hard to pick up speed because sometimes it’s crowded with people and some don’t respect the path ways.

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.

Clovis Old Town Trail

Way Too Many Busy Street Crossings

March, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: Clovis (Fresno), CA
Parking: Costco (Shaw & N. Clovis Ave)
Trail Condition: Excellent wide asphalt pathway. Well maintained.
Signage: Mostly the trail is easy to follow with except through the Old Clovis Town section. Up to that point the trail is wide asphalt with a solid white line down the middle. For about a block the trail becomes sidewalk near a school and Veterans Memorial Building. After that section it returns to the asphalt trail with white stripe. There are a number of great informational signs, little “train station” gazebos, and statues along the trail. There is even a count station showing trail usage (bikers and walkers, daily and this year) in the Old Town Clovis section. (See photo of count station in the Dry Creek Trail photos.)
Comments: We rode this to the point where we thought the north end is and the Sugar Pine Trail begins. Didn’t see any signage that defined the end of one and start of the other. Then on the return south we took the Dry Creek Trail out and back. To finish up rode to the southern end of the trail and back to parking. This trail surface was great and think must be fairly new. A number of walkers, runners and a few cyclists were encountered on the trail, not overwhelming. According to the trail counter, walkers way out number the bikers. A detractor to this trail is the number of major busy intersections that require stopping to wait for a walk signal to cross. The north end of the trail has fewer of these but does have a couple crossing with signaled cross walks requiring the press of a button to activate the warning signals, at least they aren’t at busy intersections. It is evident this trail is a rail-to-trail project. The greenway is very wide and flat. Without the many busy intersections to cross this would be a great rails-to-trails 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.
