Santa Ana River Trail Closure

The County will be closing a major portion of the Santa Ana River to all public access around January 22nd. All current residents are being moved out into other neighborhoods, and the remaining trash and pollution will need to safely be removed, and landscape restored.  The Trail between Memory Lane and Ball/Taft will be closed until the summer of 2018.
We expect the County to post a detour, but unless they re-open the existing paved detour on the east bank between Memory Lane and Orangewood to get past the 22 & 5 freeways, the best on-street detour will likely go west on Memory Lane to Lewis, then north to Orangewood, then east back across the river to Eckhoff, then north to Collins, east to Main, and west on Taft to resume the off street bike path north of Taft.

 Proposed detour reopening the existing east bank path: The County has not yet announced their detour plan...
