What is the Santa Ana River Trail?
The Santa Ana River Trail is a multi-use path that runs alongside the Santa Ana River in Southern California. The Santa Ana River Trail and Parkway was developed through the cooperative efforts of park districts, counties, cities, nonprofits and average citizens interested in recreational opportunities for this rapidly growing region. The Trail passes through 14 incorporated cities in three counties. Plans call for the trail to eventually run for a total of 110 uninterrupted miles all the way from Big Bear Lake in the San Bernardino Mountains to the Pacific Coast in Huntington Beach.
