Modesto’s 2.7-mile Virginia Corridor Trailway is a suburban rail-trail well-used by walkers, runners, bicyclists, and families. Extending between Campus Way to the southwest and Woodrow Avenue to the north, the popular landscaped trail connects to many of the city’s residential neighborhoods, schools, parks, churches, and retail and dining establishments.
The trail is built on the former Tidewater Southern Railway corridor, which has been transformed into a premier linear park, trail, and recreational gathering place. The railway provided passenger service through the 1930s, when it transitioned primarily to freight.
The only trailhead and designated parking area is located in a shopping plaza near the midpoint of the trail, at West Roseburg Avenue. Here, visitors will find signage about the history of the railroad and the region’s agricultural roots. Trail users can choose to head north or south for an out-and-back trip. There are many road crossings along the route, but all are well-marked with stop signs and crossing signals.
The Stanislaus Regional Transit bus system provides access to the trail at multiple points along the route.
Limited parking for the Virginia Corridor Trailway is available in a dedicated parking lot next to the trail on W Roseburg Avenue. Access the parking lot from the main entry for the adjacent shopping center at 801-921 W. Roseburg Avenue.
