The Whittier Greenway Trail occupies part of an abandoned railroad right-of-way in its namesake town, running parallel to Whittier Boulevard and Lambert Road between Mills Avenue and Pioneer Boulevard near I-605. An active rail line travels from Mills Avenue to the Whittier city limits; the town hopes to be granted an easement along this part of the rail so that the trail can continue into Whittier and link to trails in Orange County.
Along this urban, and sometimes noisy, trail you'll find some interesting wind vane sculptures, along with nice landscaping with native California plants.
Parking and Trail Access
The main trailhead for the Whittier Greenway Trail is at Palm Park, 5703 Palm Avenue. You can also park on the street at Lorene Street (at the northern end) and at a lot on El Rancho Drive.
