“A flat, shady riverside trail traversing the southern boundary of Ripon.”
— Joe Morgan
Beginning on Riverview Drive in Ripon, CA, this trail starts in a residential neighborhood and proceeds on a very narrow dirt trail toward and then along the Stanislaus River. The first quarter of the trail is a flat, dirt singletrack along the river before it becomes a gravel doubletrack as it travels along the south of Ripon.
Eventually, the tread transitions to a paved section for less than a mile until returning to singletrack. The trail passes by a BMX track in the Oak Grove section. After crossing beneath Highway 99, the trail enters the Army Corp of Engineers park area and ends at the park entrance on Manley Road in Ripon (Stouffer Park).
