Iron Horse Corridor

The Iron Horse Corridor in Contra Costa County stretches 18.5 miles from the Alameda County line northward to IHC kid on bikeMayette 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.


Iron Horse Corridor Management Program Advisory Committee

The advisory committee includes seats for one representative from each jurisdiction or unincorporated community along the corridor (Alamo, City of Concord, City of San Ramon, Town of Danville, City of Walnut Creek, and City of Pleasant Hill); a District II seat; a District IV seat, and a seat for East Bay Regional Park District.
