Metro Orange Line Bike Path

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Metro Orange Line Bike Path is an 18-mile rail-trail paralleling Metro's Orange Line rapid busway in the northern neighborhoods of Los Angeles. It stretches from North Hollywood to Chatsworth along the former Southern Pacific Railroad Burbank Branch right-of-way.

The path provides residents of the San Fernando Valley with a dedicated environment for cycling and walking while connecting to rapid transit. Steps from its eastern terminus is the North Hollywood Metro Station, while near its western end is the Chatsworth Station, which services Metrolink and Amtrak.

Although its purpose is utilitarian, the trail is not without its charms. Native plants line the pathway, as well as public art. The trail also runs adjacent to Anthony C. Beilenson Park, which features Lake Balboa, a playground, picnic tables, a sports complex, and other recreational amenities.

Note that the easternmost two miles of the path are on-road bike lanes along Chandler Boulevard.

Parking and Trail Access

There is a park-and-ride lot at the Sherman Way Station, parking at Chatsworth Depot, and parking available in nearby Anthony C. Beilenson Park (6300 Balboa Blvd., Encino).
