The LARIO Trail extends along the southern reaches of the channelized LA River, providing a trail corridor through a variety of natural and industrial landscapes and connecting riders to the ocean in Long Beach. The vision for the trail network is to have a trail that extends the entire length of the LA River, connecting to the completed section near Griffith Park and up into the San Fernando Valley.
