Santee Prepares for New Stretch of River Trail

A 1.3 mile trail will be constructed along the newly acquired Walker Preserve.

Another stretch of the San Diego River Trail in Santee is in planning stages and could be ready for public use in a year's time.

The Santee Review, the City of Santee blog, recently released more information about plans for a 1.3 mile public access trail along the river within the recently acquired Walker Preserve, an area north of the river, between Magnolia Avenue and the city's eastern border.

Here are a few facts from the blog post:

  • Plans include a parking lot, trail head, information kiosk, trash bins and possibly a restroom- much like Mast Trail West.
  • The trail is planned to be 14-feet wide and will follow an unpaved road used for sand mining in the past.
  • The land was purchased in part to preserve wildlife in the area (three endangered bird species), so fencing and signs will be in place to preserve the habitat.

Trail? 14' wide is a fire road not a trail, but glad to have more open space.
