Santa Ana River Trail
The Santa Ana River Trail (SART) is a multi-use trail complex that runs alongside the Santa Ana River in southern California. When completed, it will be the longest multi-use trail in Southern California, spanning 100 miles between San Bernardino and Orange County.
As envisioned, the trail connecting San Bernardino, Riverside, and Orange Counties would be a dual-track trail consisting of 1) paved Class I and Class II Bikeways for bicyclists and pedestrians and 2) decomposed granite (DG) surfaced riding and hiking trail for equestrians, mountain bicyclists, and hikers.
The Santa Ana River Trail is currently 60% complete. When finished it will run 110 miles – from the San Bernardino County National Forest to the Pacific Ocean at Huntington Beach where the trail ends. There are currently two gaps in the trail: From Green River in Orange County to Hidden Valley Wildlife area in Riverside County; and from Waterman Avenue in San Bernardino, CA to the National Forest boundary line near Mentone, CA
The Santa Ana River Trail offers opportunities along its full extent for local outdoor recreation while also connecting inland communities to the California Coastal Trail. The Trail spans 3 counties (Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino) and connects 17 cities, offering opportunities for local outdoor access along its entire extent. More than seven million people live in the three counties that the trail connects. To date, 68 miles of the Santa Ana River Trail have been completed or are under construction. Completion of the trail is the starting point in the restoration and revitalization of the 100-mile Santa Ana River and its more than 600 miles of tributaries.
