We rode from Mason station to Susanville. The west- east direction is the way to ride! It is nearly all gently downhill. Definitely recommend leaving in the morning. We left at 9 AM and arrived in Susanville at 12:10. I would allow more time if you want to picnic and take a lot of photos. The entire trail was open and there was only one time where we had to dismount our bikes. The gravel on the trail is not deep. (The reviews from four or five years ago said the deep gravel was a problem but that issue has resolved itself.) We used the bus but call before as route changing Burnt out sectionbsedestroyed by fire last year. We did not mind it
The city keeps the paths spotless.
I love this trail! Clean with beautiful scenery. Porta potty throughout the trail. Sound of the River is calming.
This is my second favorite trail of the ones I ride in the Clovis area. One entrance/exit is on Alluvial, west of Temperance - if you wish to continue east, you can cross Temperance Ave and the Enterprise Trail runs along a mainly large field and small farm on one side and close to housing and then another canal, before the trail curves around and heads to the area where McDonald's and Riley's is and then it connects on Temperance. The other entrance/exit is on Fowler, just south of Shepherd Ave.
The path is paved on one side of the canal. If you ride up or walk up to the canal embankment the path is dirt. On the other side of the canal, the path is gravel.
Dependent on the weather, the gates abutting the flood control basin will be closed and locked if rain is predicted, and sometimes it is closed and locked for reasons unknown to me. If you are taking the paved path, you must move up to the dirt embankment to continue along the trail, until you have passed the flood control basin, you can then either stay on the dirt embankment or move back down to the paved path.
Sadly, the Enterprise Trail, which used to end at Sunnyside Ave, just south of Shepherd Ave has been closed off by the residents who live along the canal between Fowler Ave and Sunnyside Ave. You used to be able to move from the Enterprise Trail to the Dry Creek Trail, and vice versa, safely before the gates were put up. Now to get from one trail to the other, you must take one of two very less safe routes.
The Enterprise Trail is totally free from having to stop at any street light or stop sign, (unless you choose to take the extended path that is on Temperance Ave, just south of Alluvial Ave). Because of the lack of having to cross streets, and the way the trail is designed, it gives the trail a feeling of privacy and sanctuary .
When the canal is full, it is gorgeous and many geese, ducks, and coots love to float on the canal and explore the embankments. Many ground squirrels take up residence along the canal, and you will also see grey or red tree squirrels scamper around the trees. If you are on a mobile device (e.g. bike, scooter, skateboard, etc.) - watch out for lizards doing pushups and sunning themselves along the path.
During Spring and fall, the terrain of the flood control basin can be almost calendar-worthy lovely; with cranes, pelicans, coots, ducks and geese, to mention a few. There is also a large, panoramic view of the hills and mountains to the east that is often breathtaking.
In the summertime, dependent on the time of day, the trees lining the paved path on both sides provide much enjoyed shade. Again, dependent on the time of year, acorns often clutter the trail in abundance. If it rains, you may ride or walk through shallow puddles here and there, but nothing unpleasant or adverse.
It is a tranquil trail, quiet and pastoral. There are still some open fields, orchards, and such that you can enjoy along the way.
Parking is not exclusively provided for people to park when wishing to use the trail. You can, however, park in the nearby shopping centers' parking lots or find a spot in the neighborhoods near the trail.
Along the trail, there are gateways to the adjoining neighborhoods where you can enter and exit the trail. If you take one, about midway, you can join up with a very nice trail created in the middle of the housing area and it will take you to Temperance Ave.
The Enterprise Canal Trail is not as frequented by users as the Dry Creek Trail, which is a plus.
There were a number of traffic crossings, which can slow one down. But there are actually nice stretches without too much foot traffic, so one can grind hard if a sprint interval workout is the aim. Signage going southbound could be much better marked/made available.
Sure, there are a lot of homeless encampments--now I know where a great deal of the downtown curbside community folks have relocated. However, I found the curbside community folks to be friendly, and will acknowledge one/reciprocate if one pays them respect with a 'Hi/Hello' or a wave--they are human beings after all who have fallen on hard times. They'll even provide recommendations on scenic ride directions off this artery. But if one would prefer to be full of fear, best ride earlier in the day, after sunup, when these folks are likely napping and out of sight.
We started on the trail at Olsens Barn I. Chester. Beautiful pasture. Flat. Worn down grass path to the river. And then...had to make our way on our town until we caught a very lightly worn path out to the lake. However, don’t go that far. The land is very wet and mossy. Turn onto the gravel path and take that as far as you can. Lovely 3.3mi walk this morning with the dogs.
I hadn’t ridden this trail for 10-15 years; it has gotten cluttered with homeless camps, crowded with fast training groups crowding my lane, and aggravated with fast and slow ebikes and scooters- I’ll not ride it again.0
Great place to walk and ride. Well kept up and pretty flowers along the way.
Fantastic ride with the family. Some streets but mostly a beautiful ride around the bay. Jim, Caryn, Dylan
All the prior reviews are accurate. I left from Carmel Ranch Community Park and followed the path toward Del Mar. The path is signed well and there are a couple forced stops to cross freeway off/on ramps. Currently there are some bumpy asphalt areas due to elevated tree roots, which are more challenging to see because they are in shaded areas. Overall, this protected bikeway was very fun to ride!!!
Beautiful, clean, well maintained, wide trail. Much of the way you have to option to be on a paved path or compact gravel. We went on a mild weathered Saturday afternoon and the trail was not busy at all. There are several intersections with lights you have to go through but it’s all very safe. Plenty of water fountains and rest break locations. Most of the trail abuts the backside of residential areas. Very little shade from sporadic trees. We felt super safe. Our GPS clocked in a little more that 18 miles (20).
My husband and I rode this trail again today. This is our third ride on the trail since February. It has fast become my favorite bike path. There is so much nature to see along the trail. Maneuvering through the detour was much easier this time.
