Event Description

The community is invited to attend a ribbon cutting ceremony in the Eastern Goleta Valley to celebrate the opening of the San Jose Bike Path and the paving of a section of the Obern Trail. The ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday, May 30 followed immediately with an informal 5-mile bike ride to the Obern Trail as part of CycleMAYnia.

The event is located at the University Circle Open Space on the corner of Merida Dr. and Agana Dr. in the Eastern Goleta Valley. The ceremony will be presided over by Second District County Supervisor Janet Wolf and Public Works Director Scott McGolpin.

“This bike path in the heart of the Second District is one of the most important connective routes for bike users, and the County Bicycle Master Plan’s highest priority project,” said Supervisor Wolf. “It enhances safe alternative transportation options for our community, while also encouraging people to ride their bikes for pleasure in a beautiful setting. I’m excited to see this much anticipated route is finally open to the public.”

What is the San Jose Creek Bike Path?

  • The San Jose Creek Bike Path is a key piece of infrastructure in the community. The path will improve pedestrian and bicycle circulation and access to a regional network of bicycle facilities for bicycle commuters.
  • The Class I path is 970 feet long and runs between Kellogg Avenue and Merida Drive. The path travels from Kellogg Avenue through the open space adjacent to the Kellogg Tennis Courts, over San Jose Creek and along the northern edge of University Open Space. The bike path is ten feet wide with 1-foot wide shoulders on each side and paved with asphalt concrete over an aggregate base.
  • The path includes a 140-foot free-span bridge over San Jose Creek. The bridge is constructed with prefabricated steel and a concrete surfaced deck. The bridge is supported by concrete abutments with cast in drilled hole (CIDH) concrete piles.

Where is the San Jose Creek Bike Path?

  • The path is located approximately 1,000 feet southwest of the Cathedral Oaks Road/Kellogg Avenue intersection, just north of the City of Goleta.
  • The path extends the Class-3 Berkeley Route from Merida Drive west over San Jose Creek to Kellogg Avenue. The path also connects the Class-2 route along Cathedral Oaks Road to the Class-1 route along Ribera Drive that connects with the Obern Trail.

But wait -- there's more bike path to come!!!

The City of Goleta is working on other portions of the San Jose Creek Bike Path Project which will extend approximately three miles alongside San Jose Creek from Cathedral Oaks Rd. to the Atascadero Creek Bikeway/Obern Trail near Goleta Beach. 

The San Jose Creek Bike Path Middle Extent Project will construct a Class I Bike Path along the west side of San Jose Creek extending from Calle Real to Hollister Ave. The San Jose Creek Bike Path Southern Extent extends from Hollister Ave. south along the new Class II bike facility proposed along Kellogg Ave. and then will cross San Jose Creek Channel via a pedestrian/bicycle bridge, to follow along the west side of State Highway 217 connecting to the existing Class I Atascadero Creek/Obern Trail.
