The City of Ukiah has been very active in developing the Northwestern Pacific (NWP) Rail Trail within the City limits. The NWP Rail Trail has the potential to provide a much-needed safe and efficient corridor for bicycle and pedestrian traffic, as well as direct access to major employment centers, services, shopping, residential areas, the future Mendocino County courthouse, and connectivity to other bicycle routes. In total the three phases of the project will provide approximately 2-miles of easily accessible roadway for bicycle and pedestrian traffic to move through the city.

Phase 1

Rail Trail Poster Web, UkiahNWP Rail Trail Phase 1 of the multi-use NWP Rail Trail was recently constructed and spans the center of Ukiah, and construction of Phases Two and Three, which will extend the trail to both the north and south city limits, have begun.

Phase 2

NWP Rail Trail Phase 2 will extend the existing rail trail from Gobbi Street south to Commerce Drive and will include a bridge crossing of Doolin Creek. Staff obtained Caltrans funding for $1,500,000 through the Active Transportation Program (ATP) for the design and construction of this project.

Phase 3

NWP Rail Trail Phase 3 will extend the existing rail trail from Clara Avenue north to Brush Street, and will include a bridge crossing over Orr Creek. Staff obtained a California Natural Resources Agency grant in the amount of $1,400,067 through the Urban Greening Program for the design and construction of this project. This project completes the Rail Trail to the north boundary of the city limits.
