Reedley Rail-Trail Description

The Reedley Rail-Trail is a multiuse trail built along railbanked right-of-way that provides an alternate route to access some of Reedley's busiest arterial streets. The path largely traverses the industrial part of town; on the southeast end, however, you do encounter cultivated fields.

Along the trail you can access City Hall, the County Courthouse, downtown areas, Reedley College, Reedley High School, several elementary schools and a park-and-ride. Benches and trees along the way make for a pleasant journey no matter the destination.

In the west, the trail ends at the Kings River next to the Reedley College campus, where you'll find a nice waterside gazebo. In the east, the trail has recently been extended north along S. Buttonwillow Avenue to a new endpoint at E. Dinuba Avenue.

Parking and Trail Access

Park at Reedley College by Manning Avenue (permit may be required) or at the plaza across Manning Avenue from campus.

Reedley Rail-Trail Reviews

Good trail with tough street crossings

The trail is in a great location, traveling behind the town, along beautiful farms. There are plenty of old growth trees providing shade on a hot Central Valley day. The only draw back are the numerous street crossings. The ramps down and up the street are covered with the large yellow bumps you see on most walkways. As a skateboarder this makes crossing the streets difficult. Without the bumps this would be a 4 star trail easy.

Great Short Trail

There is a Park and Ride lot just before W Manning Avenue crosses the railroad tracks. The west end of the trail is about a quarter mile west of here. There is a gazebo where you can look down onto the Kings River. The trail is paved with asphalt. The west half of the trail has benches along the way and has small street lights. There are several places where the trail crosses local streets. Many of these have lights in the pavement to warn the car traffic that someone is in the crosswalk. Most of these trail intersections also have roundabouts to slow trail-users and expedite movement at these crossings.

The west half of the trail (from the college to the east edge of town) has benches and lights. The east half does not have benches or lights. Also, some tree roots are pushing up the pavement. There are distance markers (every tenth of a mile) painted on the trail measured from west to east. There is a restroom located near the midpoint of the trail. There is nice landscaping along the trail. This a great trail for a short ride.
