San Gabriel River Trail

Nice Trail, but fairly busy

March, 2022 by stvatandem

My wife and I started out at the Seal Beach Trailhead and rode north to Alondra Blvd. The trail is pretty well maintained and dips below most crossroads where they cross the river. We rode on a Wednesday morning and were surprised by the number of other bike and trike riders on the trail. Appears to be very popular with the locals. Came across a couple of homeless folks, but no problems.

Pacific Electric Inland Empire Trail

From Upland to Rialto

March, 2022 by relaxful59

The trip starts at my house getting on PET from Campus Ave. in Upland. The distance is 17.5 miles one way from where I start. The trail goes east and at about two miles into the trip there are two brief climbs and from there on it's pretty much level. At the Foothill Blvd. trailhead there is restroom access. It's important to mention that unlike the Santa Ana River Trail,, there are many intersections you have to cross. With some short and some long stretches. After about nine miles, starting from the under the 15 fwy you will be on a mile stretch that is very bumpy with the concrete slabs. Not very pleasant at all for road bikes. This section ends with a rest area in Rancho Cucamonga. I look at this portion as the first half of PET. It's now mile 10.

The second half of PET begins across Baseline Rd. where you enter Fontana. You are now going southeast. The trail takes on a different character where you are in a community setting and many portions of the trail have a neat accent to them. There's a park at Oleander Ave. with a nice restroom right off PET to your left. Other parks and exercise equipment are alongside the trail, along with a number of historical buildings. Once you enter the city of Rialto, you see neat signs telling you you're at Rialto with numerous cement benches and water fountains. The trail ends at Cactus Ave. at mile 17.5.

I gave this trail a four because in Fontana and Rialto I noticed that the trail isn't being kept up regarding weeds growing inbetween the concrete slabs you're riding on. Those weeds often have thorns that can puncture tires. I recommend you check the weather forecast for wind. Cucamonga, Fontana, and Rialto are know as "wind tunnels" so better to be safe than sorry. On my second trip, I did notice signs of the homeless with trash and other items associated with them. It wasn't much but I suspect it's going to get worse because on my first trip I didn't see anything. That's not good. Hope it doesn't get too bad!

Santa Ana River Trail

From the Green River trailhead to the Honda Center

March, 2022 by relaxful59

My experience with this route is excellent. Going up and back is approx. 30 miles. The trailhead is at 4995 Green River Rd., Corona. It has ample parking. I hit the path going south with the river to my right and the 91 fwy to my left. Once I get to the first park, Featherly Regional Park, you end up looping so that the river is now on your left and riding alongside E. La Palma Ave. for a couple of miles.

Shortly after you cross Yorba Linda Blvd. going south, you're now led to the dedicated bike path for the remainder of the ride and much closer to the river. The riding surface is in very good condition. Yorba Linda Regional Park is on your right. It's a long beautiful park. You may want to stop and explore it. Right after the park ends you cross a bridge with a wooden surface and now have the river on your right. You're now at approx. mile 5.

As you proceed south, you go under several overpasses and there are some nice wide curvy sections with beautiful vegetation on both sides. At approx. 12 miles there's a mini park rest area with benches and water fountain on your right. It's a nice place to stop and have a snack for a few minutes.

It starts to gets more barren as you go further south. Looking ahead you can now see the Honda Center, Anaheim transportation center, and Anaheim Stadium a few miles away. When I get there its mile 15 and I turn back.

As I end, I do want to say that it's best to check out the weather forecast mainly for wind. There have been a couple of times when I had to turn back because of strong winds! I recommend you start in the morning around 7-9 am. From the trailhead at Green River to the Honda Center it's mainly going downhill. So, just keep in mind that you'll be returning going uphill. But it is a moderate climb. During my rides I did not see any homeless encampments. If you prefer it on the quiet side, it best to ride the bike path on weekdays. I did go on it one Sunday and it wasn't too bad but there was noticeably more traffic with bikers and walkers. Well, I hope you enjoyed my review of the Santa Ana River Trail from Green River to the Honda Center.

Pacific Electric Inland Empire Trail

Loving to Ride

January, 2022 by w9v2vc6srs

I start at Citrus and ride to Claremont. Nice ride, only one detour where a portion is being rebuilt; have to detour up to Arrow but it takes you thru the Colleges campus to the village.

Colton Rail-Trail

good trail- 23 mile round trip

November, 2021 by diana25usc

Tried it for the first time, nice trail that follows the Santa Ana river. Nice and paved all the way, scenic of birds and mountains. Maybe three sections of homeless camps but nothing to worry about. I made it a little pass Rancho Jurupa Regional Park before I turned back to Colton starting point.

Pacific Electric Inland Empire Trail

new to biking

July, 2021 by marliapjess

I really like this trail. I have only made it from Cactus to Cherry Ave. But it seems like a safe and easy ride so far. You’ll see some homeless people peppered throughout Fontana area but in all there are a lot of people walking, running and biking.

Santa Ana River Trail

Great beginner trail

July, 2021 by nicole.m.cortez

My first time cycling and my boyfriend and I started near Yorba Linda park off imperial Hwy. We parked for free next to the park where there was a trail entrance. Rode 10 miles to angel stadium and back. Trail was clean, not trashed, flat, plenty of room, no homeless camps or anything sketchy. Very pretty near yorba linda, mostly just concrete as we got further from our start point. We started the trail at 9am. Trail got busier as the day went on. Looked like plenty of water fountains along the trail. There were bathrooms at the park where we started. I would recommend

San Gabriel River Trail

disappointing

June, 2021 by allana_tl

I hadn’t ridden this trail for 10-15 years; it has gotten cluttered with homeless camps, crowded with fast training groups crowding my lane, and aggravated with fast and slow ebikes and scooters- I’ll not ride it again.0

Pacific Electric Inland Empire Trail

beautiful trail

May, 2021 by mlehill11

Beautiful, clean, well maintained, wide trail. Much of the way you have to option to be on a paved path or compact gravel. We went on a mild weathered Saturday afternoon and the trail was not busy at all. There are several intersections with lights you have to go through but it’s all very safe. Plenty of water fountains and rest break locations. Most of the trail abuts the backside of residential areas. Very little shade from sporadic trees. We felt super safe. Our GPS clocked in a little more that 18 miles (20).

San Gabriel River Trail

Downey to Seal Beach

April, 2021 by christianalbrecht65

I did this trail for the first time & decided to start in Downey. Heads up, if you’re not a resident of Downey they charge $5 for parking. It is a decent trail to ride. Very similar to the Los Angeles River Trail but much cleaner. I still would love to start in Azusa, ride to Seal Beach & back to complete a metric Century.

Santa Ana River Trail

Santa Ana River Trail. A fun easy ride

March, 2021 by cathyc1808

We started at Kaiser Permanente on Lakeview in Anaheim. Easy access to the trail, 19 miles to the ocean. Enter on the trail, this side of the River and head west. Cross the River at the Honda center, stay left to leave the trail and cross the street to enter the trail on the other side of the river. Follow the trail as it make a 360 turn to continue west. At the 1st wooden foot bridge, turn left to cross the bridge. Turn right as you exit the bridge. Follow the trail to the 2nd wooden foot bridge (trail on this side of the river ends, you must exit the trail), turn right to cross the bridge, as you come off the bridge turn left and continue the last 6 miles or so to the beach. You will go under the PCH, loop to the right, make a left just before getting to PCH. In about 1 block you will intersect with the Huntington Beach Trail which heads down the beach or PCH to Long Beach and beyond. Have fun
