Dry Creek Trail (Clovis) Description

The Dry Creek Trail is a mostly level, shady trail that follows its namesake creek in Clovis. The western trailhead connects with the Clovis Old Town Trail and has a small parking lot. The trail travels east and north, passing along Cottonwood Park, Dry Creek Park and the Clovis Botanical Gardens. Most street crossings have stoplights, and public restrooms are available in Dry Creek Park.

The eastern trailhead has plentiful parking, restrooms, a few tables and a bicycle repair station. Enterprise Trail is just east of the eastern trailhead, and can be accessed by a short ride along the bank of Enterprise Canal to N. Fowler Avenue.

Parking and Trail Access

To reach the western trailhead from State Route 168, take the Herndon Avenue exit, and travel west a half mile to N. Villa Avenue. Turn north on Villa and then take the next right on Minnewawa Avenue. The parking lot is behind the fire station.

To reach the eastern traihead from SR 168, take the Herndon Avenue exit, and travel west a half mile to N. Villa Avenue. Turn north on Villa. Villa almost immediately curves and becomes N. Minnewawa Avenue. Continue north 3 miles to Shepherd Avenue. Turn right on Shepherd and drive east 0.9 mile to the trailhead near N. Sunnyside Avenue.

Dry Creek Trail (Clovis) Reviews

Lovely trail. Nice tree and water along the trail. Very peaceful for my ride .

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.

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.
