Santa Ana River Trail & Pkwy

  • SART PHASE III UPDATE: Due to the Least Bell’s Vireo bird nesting season, construction on the final sections of SART Phase III has been stopped and closure signs have been posted along the 3.8 mile trail. Construction is expected to resume on or about Sept. 1, 2024, after bird nesting ends. Once construction resumes, the two sections: Waterman Avenue and Orange Show Road undercrossings will be scheduled for paving.

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.


SART Phase III Groundbreaking Ceremony

The Santa Ana River Trail took a major step in its march from the mountains to the sea on Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2023 when Board of Supervisors Chair Dawn Rowe and Supervisor Joe Baca, Jr. broke ground on the newest segment, which will run from San Bernardino into Redlands.

The ground we are breaking today signals that we are getting very close to completing this magnificent 110-mile project,” Rowe said during a ceremony at the northern end of California Street in Redlands, which will mark the eastern end of the trail’s Phase III.

If the weather cooperates, the 3.8-mile segment of the trail will be completed in April 2024. It will then be possible to walk or bicycle on a trail along the river from a spot north of California Street, through all of San Bernardino and Colton, and nearly to the western end of Riverside. It picks up near the Orange County line and runs to the Pacific Ocean in Huntington Beach.

When completed, the Santa Ana River Trail will be the longest multi-use trail in Southern California. San Bernardino County Regional Parks is responsible for the creation, operation, and maintenance of the 22 miles of trail that will be located within our county.

“This project shows that San Bernardino County and our many partners have made the quality of life in our communities a top priority,” Baca said.

Regional Parks Director Beahta Davis said funding for Phase III came primarily from two sources: $6.9 million dollars of state Proposition 84 grant funding provided by the California Coastal Conservancy, and $1.1 million in federal Active Transportation Program grant funding.

“This aligns with the commitment our county’s leaders made when they adopted the Countywide Vision and launched the Vision2BActive campaign to promote a healthy and active community,” Rowe said.

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 to the National Forest boundary line near Mentone. Regional Parks is responsible for the creation, operation and maintenance of 22 miles of trail with four phases of development.

Phase I and II are complete; Phase III  is in construction and Phase IV are in design and development. Phases I and II are open and comprise 7.2 miles of trail starting at Waterman Avenue behind in San Bernardino to the Riverside County Line.

The 3.8 mile stretch of Phase III will run from Waterman Avenue to California Street in Redlands. Phase IV will run from California Street in Redlands to Garnet Street in Mentone and up to the San Bernardino National Forest for a total of another 11 miles.
