Accessible from the Santa Clarita Metrolink station, the Chuck Pontius Commuter Trail is a 5.5-mile paved, kid-friendly bike and walking path that offers a direct route for cyclists and other trail users through the neighborhoods of Santa Clarita just south of the Santa Clara River.

The trail runs east-west along the south side of Soledad Canyon Road from Camp Plenty Road to Golden Triangle Road. It then travels along the north side of Soledad Canyon Road to Commuter Way, and along Commuter Way anchored by the Santa Clarita Metrolink Station.

At one point, the trail even runs alongside the railroad tracks parallel to where the Metrolink travels before diverging with Soledad Canyon Road and crossing the Santa Clara River. From here, trail users can continue east or west on the longer Santa Clara River Trail.

This trail is an ideal ride for any age or skill level as it’s mostly paved and flat. It can be a fun weekend outing for families, friends or couples to embark on an active adventure.
