What Is the Pacific Electric Trail?
Haven’t heard of the Pacific Electric Trail (PET)? The PET spans 21 miles from Claremont to Rialto following the old Pacific Electric Railway - the largest electric railway system in the world during the 1920s. Walking, running and biking are just some of the ways to get outdoors and enjoy this beautifully maintained trail right in your backyard. You’ll find easy access to parking, water fountains, parks, community centers, and even outdoor fitness equipment.
How to Enjoy Let’s Move on the Trail
Let’s Move on the Trail consists of three main areas:
Safety & Emergency Preparedness: Miller Amphitheater/Steelworkers’ Auditorium.

Head over to this area for art and crafts, as well as vendor resources and giveaways.
Active Play/Taste of Fontana: Seville Park.
Get active and enjoy fun family activities and games at Seville Park. Afterward, refuel with delicious and healthy samples from local vendors.
Connecting each area of the event is the Family Walk/Run and Bike Ride. Healthy Fontana will be giving away free T-shirts and bike helmets to those who register.
