Vernon McCullough Fresno River Trail Description

The Vernon McCullough Fresno River Trail runs along the dry river in Madera, offering a recreation and transportation amenity for the city's residents and visitors. The trail is divided in two by active railroad tracks and Gateway Drive, but the city is working on constructing a new undercrossing to bridge the gap. Eventually, expansion eastward will complete the trail, which is planned to one day span Madera city limits.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking and restrooms are available at Rotary Park on Gateway Drive.

Vernon McCullough Fresno River Trail Reviews

The trail is nicely maintained, running along the dry Fresno River bed. The trail follows the Fresno River and runs under Highway 99 through Madera. Midway, it has a break with one end terminating at Rotary Park. There are restrooms, picnic tables and a skate park at Rotary Park.

The other end is on the east side of the railroad tracks. The safest way to catch the rest of the east half of the trail is to go north from Rotary Park up to Cleveland and then come south along the sidewalk on the east side of the tracks.
