A very flat trail, following the bed of an old railroad line.

Overview

Need to Know

There are no trespassing signs posted in the area along this stretch. Please stay on the designated trail.

Description

This connects the Santa Ana River Trail to the Orange Blossom Trail in Redlands. It follows the old railway bed, which was once a railway in the early 20th century.

The entire dirt trail parallels Opal Street through Mentone. The northern section is smooth, while the southern section, as you near the Mentone library, becomes very rutted and hard to find a good line through. There is a very busy street crossing on Highway 38.

The final section between Highway 38 and Colton Ave is infested with goathead thorns, which will completely cover your tires, giving you flats front and rear if you're not running tubeless tires.

This trail has too many goat heads for riding. There is also no easy way to cross State Highway 38. 4 days ago
