Visalia's Santa Fe Trail extends south from the core of the city to its rural agricultural fringes. The northern half of the trail occupies a former Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad corridor railroad corridor, while the southern half shares the space with a still active rail line. The entire length of the trail features smooth pavement, lights and landscaping.
In the future, the trail will be extended to meet Tulare's Santa Fe Trail, which occupies the same former rail corridor in the smaller city to Visalia's south.
There are no official parking areas for the Santa Fe Trail, but parking may be available on nearby city streets. Be sure to obey any posted parking restrictions.
My wife and I ride this trail quite often and enjoy the easy access from our part of town to downtown Visalia. The trail is on a north/south axis and is paved and well signed. It stops a couple of blocks short of downtown but the road is wide and an easy 3 block bike ride or walk to the east side of downtown, not far from the transit station.
