Description Suggest an Edit

The San Gabriel River Trail extends from the base of the San Gabriel Mountains all the way to the Pacific Ocean. A key component to LA's transportation infrastructure, the trail will eventually connect to the Rio Hondo and Whittier Greenway to form the backbone of a huge trail system for the region. The trail travels through a diverse landscape of industrialized and natural areas, including Santa Fe dam recreation area and the Whittier narrows. Parking and restrooms are available at the ranger station at the north end and beach access at the southern end.
