Residents Invited to Ribbon Cutting for River Village Trailhead
The City of Santa Clarita, in partnership with FivePoint, will host a ribbon cutting event on Thursday, November 30 at 10:00 a.m. to celebrate the new River Village Trailhead, located at Bouquet Canyon Road and Newhall Ranch Road. Those interested in attending must RSVP by Monday, November 27. The event is free and open to the public.
The new River Village Trailhead is the result of a partnered collaboration between the City, FivePoint and Castaic Lake Water Agency. The trailhead connects visitors to the 11-mile long Santa Clara River trail which is the City’s main backbone trail along the Santa Clara River from Interstate 5 to Sand Canyon Road.
The trailhead currently features a drinking fountain, bike rack, a bike fix-it station (created in partnership with the SCV Bicycle Coalition), four picnic tables, two benches and a water feature using river rocks from the nearby Santa Clara River. Castaic Lake Water Agency will be constructing seven parking spaces, one accessible parking space and two electric vehicle charging stations, scheduled to be open to the public by spring of 2018. The trailhead parking shares its entrance with the newly opened Starbucks coffee shop.
“The City is thrilled to be able to provide another trailhead in partnership with FivePoint and Castaic Lake Water Agency. Trailheads clearly mark out where a trail begins and the easier we make it for residents and visitors to find our trails, the more encouraged they are to explore them,” said Mayor Cameron Smyth.
