MURRIETA CREEK: Four cities unite to form regional trail

I found an article this morning which aligns with some of our objectives. Thought it would be a good read for those of us interested in the Apple Valley Legacy Trail. Here’s an excerpt and a link to the original story:

MURRIETA CREEK: Four cities unite to form regional trail

The Temecula resident is really looking forward to the day when he can lace up his shoes and run on a trail that stretches from Temecula to Lake Elsinore, a quiet and serene ribbon that safely passes through Murrieta and Wildomar.

And after the Utah native has done the length on foot, he plans to try it on a bike as well.

“I’m an avid cyclist and avid runner,” he said. “I even travel to different states to utilize trail systems. Unfortunately we don’t have anything like that. This would be a huge step in the right direction for our future.”

“This” is the Murrieta Creek Regional Trail, a 12-mile-long, multipurpose path that will connect the four communities and serve as the spine for a network of trails that lead from it, a list that includes the Santa Rosa Plateau in Murrieta and Butterfield Trail in Temecula.

Temecula this week became the fourth and final city to approve the proposed alignment of the trail, which will run alongside Murrieta Creek through Temecula, Murrieta and Wildomar and then head north to Lake Elsinore.
