This trail provides a shady path along an historic irrigation canal from York St to Colorado Blvd. Along the way there are signs expounding upon the interesting history of the area. There are benches and playgrounds along the way. Great for young families and retired folks alike. There is a cement biking trail and a gravel walking trail. Many people use this peaceful trail to walk their dogs (on leash only).

I enjoyed the part of the trail from York to Colorado. The portion between Colorado and Summit Grove is densely pack housing, and wasn't as enjoyable. I enjoyed the railroad theme, it was a beautiful day, and not taxing at all.

Easy. Good for some history ( railroad) , with playground and picnic tables

Very nice trail even with an occasional shady spot. Sometimes there are even gravel path alternatives to the concrete which is nice when you're walking or running. The only negative is the junky looking back backyards with the dilapidated fences that you see along the way. Some distance markers would be a nice addition.
