Iron Horse Corridor

IHC kid on bikeThe Iron Horse Corridor in Contra Costa County stretches 18.5 miles from the Alameda County line northward to Mayette Avenue in Concord. Formerly a Southern Pacific Railroad route, the Iron Horse Corridor now features a paved multi-use trail for walking, jogging, and bicycling along with adjacent unpaved or soft trails in some areas.

The corridor also includes a number of underground utility lines such as water lines, gas pipelines, and fiber optic systems along with flood control channels, power lines, and portions of a few local streets. 

The key feature of the corridor is the paved trail known as the Iron Horse Regional Trail, managed by the East Bay Regional Park District.
