Butterfield Overland Trail Project

Posted on: 10-8-2015 Posted in: Trails News, Uncategorized

In 2013, a multi-agency team began exploring opportunities for development of a multi-use recreational trail following the historic alignment of the Butterfield Overland Stage route through Temescal Valley along the Temescal Wash corridor, from the City of Lake Elsinore to the City of Corona. The planning team envisioned a regional trail link that connects to the Murrieta Creek Regional Trail at its southern end (and, ultimately, to the Temecula Wine Country Trails) and at its northern end to the 100+ mile Santa Ana River Trail, which travels from the San Bernardino Mountains to Huntington Beach.

The “Butterfield Overland Trail Project: Temescal Valley Alignment Analysis” was developed by this multi-agency team with the intent of serving as an initial starting point for future development of the trail.
