The Rancho Cucamonga segment of the trail extends approximately 7 miles between the City’s western and eastern boarders. The trail features two parallel paths: a ribbon of concrete and another of decomposed granite. The concrete path is intended for pedestrians and bicyclists, while the softer surface is designed for walkers, joggers and equestrian riders.
The Trail has night lighting for safety and has climate appropriate landscaping, trash cans and doggie clean-up bag dispensers at intersection crossings. You’ll even find benches, horse tie-ups and drinking fountains for the two legged and four legged trail users along the route.
