Red Rock Trail

Enjoy This Friendly Trail Rain or Shine!

Whether you're strolling along, walking your dog, or bicycling, the Red Rock Trail provides a joy to the senses. Now approximately 1.75 miles in length, the paved trail runs from State Street to Nicholas Court along Sutherlin Creek through the City right of way offering scenic views and the sounds of wildlife in the Wetland Conservation areas.

The City recently completed the trail extension from Waite Street to Nicholas Court and is now looking at signage, benches, and trash receptacles for that area. There are three nice walk bridges over Sutherlin Creek - one off of Everett Street, one off of Glen Street, and one off of Sea Street. This trail is closed to motorized vehicles. Both law enforcement and fire and life safety personnel have access keys to the locked entryways onto the trail. The City will be responsible for maintenance of vegetation control and paving surface.

There is limited parking at both Sunny Court and Nicholas Court. Additional parking can be found at Waite Street. There is also parking at Central Park and at the City Hall/Library area on Everett Street. This enjoyable pathway is for people of all ages to experience close-to home-recreational opportunities that enhance our quality of life.
