Today, Mayor Frank Ferry and the Santa Clarita City Council held a special ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Iron Horse Trailhead.
This four-mile riding and walking path has been years in the making, and is now incorporated with the historic, 1898 railroad trestle bridge adjacent to Magic Mountain Parkway, which connects to the South Fork Trail.
Mayor Ferry and the City Council spoke about the importance of the partnership project between the City of Santa Clarita and Newhall Land, which links local trails with regional trails, providing a scenic pathway for users.
Councilmember Laurene Weste was an integral part of the trail’s development and shared information about the trail and featured art piece’s community and historical significance with the 200+ attendees.
The new trailhead area includes: a rest area with a shaded structure with benches and a kiosk, pedestrian and equestrian parking, a drinking fountain, a water bubbler for horses and a trailside art piece (pictured above) completed by local artists Idelle Tyzbir and Dianne Foderaro.
