facebook-icon

The City of Ukiah has been very active in developing the Great Redwood Trail within the City limits. The trail provides 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 throughout the city. In total Phases 1, 2, and 3 of the project provide approximately 2-miles of easily accessible roadway for bicycle and pedestrian traffic to move through the city.

Phase 1

Phase 2

Phase 2 extended the trail from Gobbi Street south to Commerce Drive and includes 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

Phase 3 extended the trail from Clara Avenue north to Brush Street, and includes 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 Great Redwood Trail to the north boundary of the city limits.

Additional Phase

Funding is being sought for an additional phase to complete the trail to the south boundary of the city limits.
