Santa Clara River Trail
EAST SEGMENT- From Lost Canyon Road to Soledad Canyon Road near Camp Plenty Road in Canyon Country along north bank of the Santa Clara River.
WEST SEGMENT- From the Santa Clarita Metrolink Station west to the South Fork Trail along the south bank of the Santa Clara River. Santa Clara River Trail begins again at McBean Parkway extending west another 1/2 mile terminating near Edison Curve, with no access to Magic Mountain Parkway.
NORTH SEGMENT (not shown on map)- From McBean Parkway east to Bouquet Canyon Road along north bank of the Santa Clara River. East end runs partially along Bouquet Creek.
This trail is easily accessible. It also makes a great bypass of the business district of Canyon Country by taking it instead of Soledad Canyon Road. Watch for increased pedestrian traffic along eastern trail segment.
