Chuck Pontius Commuter Trail Description

The Chuck Pontius Commuter Trail offers a direct route for cyclists and other trail users through the neighborhoods of Santa Clarita south of the Santa Clara River. While not as scenic as other trails in the city's impressive network, it is undoubtedly—as its name suggests—one of the more useful for non-motorized commuting.

From its western end at a junction with the South Fork River Trail, the Chuck Pontius Commuter Trail travels behind several car dealerships before settling for its track alongside Soledad Canyon Road. The path soon becomes a rail-with-trail, as the trail and Metrolink commuter rail ride in unison before diverging where Soledad Canyon Road crosses the Santa Clara River. From here, trail users can continue east or west on the longer Santa Clara River Trail.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Chuck Pontius Commuter Trail is available at the Camp Plenty Road Trailhead (intersection of Camp Plenty Road and Soledad Canyon Road) in Santa Clarita.
