A great trail for biking, jogging , running, and walking. Pet friendly with waste stations throughout. Can be conscidered challending depend on how far you take it, and where you start it from. This is a gtreat trail to ride and explore for all ages. There are so many different changes in angles throughout the journey , especialy if you go the distance. You will see lots of wild rabbits, squirrrels, birds, and other creatures that are being flushed out by the deveopment of new street connections and neighborhoods. You get to see alot of major scenery changes throughout the trail. In central fontana it will take you right to the new libraray and all down town sierra. As you take it west, you will see a wide range of changes from development to fields and even as you cross baseline to continue you'll see giant powerline towers, cool little bridges that look like they are just for the trail... It's a great adventure all around. Not a ton of shade along the entire trail. But you can find rest stops off the trails path.

I love this trail! There is both a dirt and paved trail for pedestrians and cyclists. Not much to see while on this trail, but still a great ride.

I hate that this is listed in here. It's just a paved walking trail. Absolutely nothing exciting about it. Homeless people have taken up residence in some areas of the trail as well as some questionable activity in the evening hours as well.

NOTE: This review only covers the section of this trail in Fontana, from Seville Park at Cypress Ave through Alder, where we turned around.

This is a fantastic suburban paved trail with some unique sights. We were delighted by the Civic Center (the trail travels right next to the beautiful Lewis Library and Technology Center), The Historical Society roses and grape vines, some beautiful landscaping including definitively IE orange trees, and numerous friendly walkers and cyclists we encountered. This is central Fontana, and it should be noted that we also passed some industrial areas, homeless people, and trash (we'll be bringing a bag along next time, and maybe snacks for the homeless we encounter). The trail appears to have good lighting, though we went in the morning so I can't speak to what hours it is on for. All in all, a unique and enjoyable experience that will be repeated. Looking forward to exploring the Rancho and Upland portions of the trail this summer.

One thing to consider: the trail is very straight and runs east/west. This means that if you do a there-and-back portion in the morning, it pays to travel easterly for your first leg, with the sun in your face, so that your return trip is more comfortable with the sun at your back. For a twilight hike, the opposite strategy is recommended (travel westerly at first so that the western sun is at your back as you return).
