Run the Carriage Trail

Rate this Adventure Orange County Carriage Trail

Added by Christian Soto

This is a nice 2.5 mile out and back trail in Redlands, CA. It offers nice views of San Timoteo Canyon as well as a limited stream along the trail. You can take the more direct route or the longer route along the canyon. One section offers a canyon overlook where there is a bench and you can watch the sunset or enjoy viewing the valley. 

There is room to park just off San Timoteo Road. On the other side of the trail is more parking off Alessandro. You can park your car on either side and start your run/walk/bike ride. This is a nice little "get away" trail to take a break from suburbia.
