Welcome to the Central Valley Rails to Trails Foundation

The Central Valley Rails to Trails Foundation is dedicated to converting unused rail corridors throughout the Central Valley into trails for local communities to enjoy.

Our focus has been on 27.5 miles of the historic Central California Traction Rail Company (CCT) Rail Corridor.  Over 100 years ago, the Corridor was built to transport passengers and freight between Sacramento and San Joaquin Counties.  Now the Corridor can continue to serve as a link between the two counties through the creation of a rail trail for non-motorized recreation and alternative commuting.

Find out more about this important effort to create a safe transportation route for cycling, horseback riding, jogging and scenic walks.  Join us!
