The Clovis Old Town Trail is part of a 13 mile pedestrian and bike path constructed on land once used by the Southern Pacific Railroad for a spur line. Three thousand volunteers from Clovis and Fresno came together on May 6, 2000 to plant approximately 5,000 trees on the “Great Rail—Trail Planting” day thus establishing a Guinness World Record for the most trees planted in an urban setting in one day! The Clovis Old Town Trail along with the Fresno portion, The Sugar Pine Trail, offer trail users shade, beautiful scenery, and a great deal of civic pride.
Yesterday while I was at a guild meeting in Fresno, my husband ran the Sugar Pine portion of the trail, which goes from River Park Mall in Fresno to the Old Town Clovis Trail. He said it was a “good place to run with a lot of trees.”
