It runs along what was formerly the right-of way of the Santa Fe Railroad parallel to Ohio Street, between the end of the Ohlone Greenway adjacent to the intersection of Macdonald and San Pablo Avenues, and Point Richmond. There is a connector from the trail to the Macdonald 80 Shopping Center in the North & East neighborhood. The trail is landscaped with community gardens, native vegetation, daylighted portions of Baxter Creek, and an artificial creek channel used to filter pollution along its frontage.
An additional side project will add a bike lane/bike trail between the Richmond Greenway and the Ohlone Greenway at Potrero Avenue via 23rd Street, Carlson Boulevard, Cutting Boulevard, and Potrero.
In 2006, an organization called Friends of the Richmond Greenway started organizing community events, advocating for the trail's expansion and helping with maintenance. The organization's mission is "to serve as a collaborative of local organizations and community members that work together to transform the Richmond Greenway into a beautiful and healthy space that meets the diverse needs of our community".
