Santa Maria Valley Multi-Purpose Trail Description

The Santa Maria Valley Multi-Purpose Trail runs for more than 2 miles on the southern edge of Santa Barbara County's largest city. The northern end occupies a former rail corridor—and parallels an active one—adjacent to the Santa Maria Country Club, while the southern end parallels Skyway Drive and the Orcutt Expressway (State Route 135) next to farmland.

Highlights along the route include the Hagerman Sports Complex, Santa Maria Valley YMCA and Santa Maria Public Airport.

Parking and Trail Access

Ample parking for the Santa Maria Valley Multi-Purpose Trail is available mid-trail at Santa Maria's Hagerman Sports Complex (3300 Skyway Drive).

Santa Maria Valley Multi-Purpose Trail Reviews

At the south end of the trail you will come upon Waller Park. This is not a trail, but the ride throughout the park is far better than the trail itself, which has no real draw, except that it is a designated two lane bike trail.

Riding through the park, which is full of beautiful pines, lush green lawns, a small pond, and minimal, 10 mile per hour, traffic. At keast that was the case when we rode in the late afternoon. A great place to stop for a picnic lunch. This is a day use park, so there are bathrooms, tables, etc.

"Started at the Trail head N34.89933 W120.44486 elev 249’, with parking in the Park Parking Lot.
This trail has a grainy asphalt surface with very few cracks, an excellent formula. Well utilized this 6 Mar 07 morning by walkers. No restrooms or water fountains on the trail. About .37 mile is adjacent to a RR Track and power lines. Apparently the trail has not been extended the 2.5 miles expected in 2003."
