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 is NOT a public trail! Apr 14, 2018

This trail has too many goat heads for riding. There is also no easy way to cross State Highway 38. Apr 16, 2018
This is part of the Orange Blossom Trail... it is not developed yet. The full county plan can be seen here: scag.ca.gov/Documents/SANBA… and specifically on the ES.1 map at the end. It's the red future planned Class III trail. There are goatheads on this trip, similar to many trails in the area. That is specifically mentioned in the description. Cross traffic on Hwy 38 does not stop. Riders need to be patient and wait till there is clearance to cross. Good sight lines both directions. Apr 22, 2018
