Rattlesnakes

April, 2018 by pgriess

Trip cut short, rattlesnakes, one coiled and leaped. Missed me. That was only 2.5 miles in. So be careful. I was glad my dogs were behind me. I was surprised, usually rattlesnakes don't get aggressive.

Merced River Trail

Great trail in the Springtime

April, 2018 by svanarts

My wife and I made a day trip up to the MRT and thoroughly enjoyed it. There were numerous wildflowers blooming and the river was running fast from the recent rains we'd had. It's a great trail for beginners and that's exactly what we wanted.

Great trail. Good lighting ,safe and clean. Good amenities such as Bike repair areas and tire pumps, bathrooms at the parks, well marked with safety crossings on small streets and the biggest bonus Emergency call boxes on the trail.

Dry Creek Trail (Clovis)

Nice Improvements

June, 2016 by dham

I've been riding this trail periodically for several years. The downside of this trail is the trees. They do provide nice shade, however, their roots cause rough spots on the asphalt. The best improvement is at the north trailhead. There's a parking lot for vehicles and nice covered parking for bicycles.

Merced River Trail

The Grumpy Old man

May, 2016 by c_dier

05/28/2016 Unshaded - Yes; limited.
Tons of sticker bushes - 5 varieties.
Challenging - Meh; Mostly flat with small inclines.
Watch for gopher/varmint holes.

Was easy to find on the Briceburg side. This trail was enjoyable, mostly. Bring your non-cloth hiking boots/shoes or wind up with "Bullet Ant" shoes.

The best part? The "rock fairy" a nice gentleman named Eric. Was very informative about geology.

Next trip is hike upstream, raft down stream.

Clovis Old Town Trail

Love this trail

February, 2016 by nursemeg26

I run on this trail before sunrise several days a week. The trails are always clean and well-maintained. The lighting is great and I always feel safe.

Dry Creek Trail (Clovis)

Our go-to trail

August, 2015 by vaunamri

We ride this trail pretty much every evening we have a spare hour. It's an easy, pleasant ride. If we want a longer ride, we start in Old Town Clovis on the Old Town Trail, connect to the Dry Creek Trail, and then continue on the Enterprise Trail. The three trails connect nicely for a pleasant hour and a half ride.

Clovis Old Town Trail

Awesome trail

I had a great job and walk here. Very safe and clean.

Merced River Trail

No visible sign on Bagby Side

April, 2015 by tonystrail

Went looking for this trail from the Bagby end but nothing!! I went off of the directions given in this website. The directions say that If you're driving south on Hwy 49 you will see Pinetree Rd and then continue onto French Rd.

I never saw either one. There are no street signs for Pinetree Rd or French Rd off of Hwy 49. I drove the area twice. Others bicyclists looking for the same trail had difficulty as well. If somebody could assist I would really appreciate it. I'd like to find this trail....Thanks.
