The Dennis Wendt Memorial Trail is the brainchild on Sean Swanson, a Fortuna resident, who had been working with the homeless population who previously lived along the idle corridor, helping them reconnect with family or situated with jobs. Swanson also led an effort to clean the litter on the corridor. The Dennis Wendt Memorial Trail was opened in April 2019 after two years of work, and named in memory of a local resident. Now, 0.7-mile of rail-trail are open, starting from the US-101 underpass at 3rd and Main St. up to Palmer Blvd. It is hoped that the trail will someday extend to Fernbridge but for now it is a 1.4-mile roundtrip. The tracks are still visible under the gravel of the trail.
The trailhead is on 3rd and Main Street, behind the Redi-Rents.
