Equestrians, bicyclists, runners and sightseers are celebrating the completion of a new trailhead.

The Iron Horse Trailhead opened to hundreds of trail enthusiasts Friday morning, providing a new connection to the South Fork Trail.

The 4-mile Iron Horse Trail is a multi-use riding and walking path that extends from the trailhead at the north side of Magic Mountain Parkway east of Tourney Road, to the South Fork Trail.

“This is a monumental thing,” said Santa Clarita Councilwoman Laurene Weste. “We have become a community of trails. We are noted for them. It is growing.”

Today, approximately 70 miles of trails and 20 miles of paseos weave through the Santa Clarita Valley. The Iron Horse Trail adds four more miles.

The path features many amenities for those looking to partake in the experience including water bubblers for horses, bike racks, a rest area and benches, as well as a paved access road.

“It’s really smooth and looks great,” said runner Kyle Robinson, referring to the trail’s new pavement.

“Crossroads at Iron Horse Trailhead,” a trailside art piece, serves as the focal point of the entrance, greeting trail-goers as they enter the area.

The 15-foot-tall monument showcases three vertical steel beams, each with two arms pointing in the general direction of an assortment of historical landmarks around the Santa Clarita Valley including the Oak of the Golden Dream, Newhall Ranch, Mentryville, Tataviam Indians, Lyons Station and the Golden Spike.

“The Iron Horse Trailhead is a wonderfully unique partnership project between the City of Santa Clarita and Newhall Land designed to link our local trails with regional trails, providing a scenic pathway for users,” said Mayor Frank Ferry.
