The Santa Ana River Trail, upon completion, will reach from Big Bear to the Pacific Ocean and will total 110 miles of recreational trails and parkway. San Bernardino, Riverside and Orange Counties are working as a partnership to operate and maintain the trail.
The San Bernardino County portion of the Santa Ana River Trail will run from Garnet Road in Mentone to the North to the Riverside County boundary line to the south and will encompass 21 miles.
Currently, seven miles of trail in San Bernardino County are open running from Waterman at Hospitality Road to the Riverside County line. The trail is ideal for cycling, walking, or skating and may also be used as an alternative method of commuting.
Phase III, a 3.6 mile stretch running from Waterman Avenue to California Street in Redlands is anticipated to open in summer 2012.
Several County Regional Parks offer nature trails for hiking or mountain biking giving visitors an opportunity to experience the native wildlife and flora of the area. Spring and summer can find the hills blooming with colorful wildflowers, providing beautiful vistas to explore.
