Calleguas Creek Bike Path

Amazing Bike Path

November, 2017 by seabeegeorge

This trail is heavily used by so many people and visitors from outside the City. I give it a rating of 10/10 because of how it was built with so much engining thought. The trail runs next to Calleguas Creek from Upland all the way to the Pleasant Valley Field complex on the west side of the 101 freeway. The enterances to the path are so well posted and easy to enter with a trike. There are a lot of other cyclist with all types and class, and along side there path is filled with the usual dog walkers and runner. I love the way the path crossess the roads by building a path underneath the road, and this allows it to be very safe for everyone! The bathrooms are at the Pleasant Valley Fields and at Pitts Ranch Park and are very clean. I ride a trike and sometimes I find myself zoning out as I peddle down the path because it is so relaxing. I am sure you will too!!!!

Pacific Electric Inland Empire Trail

Very inconvenient western end

November, 2017 by jeffowens507

If I could split this review, I would rate most of the trail, from Upland to points east, 5 stars. But the westernmost 4 miles from Upland to Claremont are terrible. The street crossings require you to leave the trail, go down to the nearest traffic light to cross, then go back up to the trail to continue. This wouldn't be so bad if the crossings weren't every quarter mile, and if the crosswalk buttons weren't placed in such bizarre, hard to reach places. I guess it's OK if you live here, but if you are visiting from outside the area, just pretend the trail starts in Upland. It's fantastic.

Pacific Electric Inland Empire Trail

Good ride on Pacific Electric Trail

September, 2017 by pwbdan

Had a fun fast spin on the PE IE trail yesterday. Started at N. Cactus in Rialto and rode to Victoria Park Ln. and back. There is a short section in Fontana closed for construction between Emerald Ave. and Juniper Ave. but just go slightly over to the parallel road to the left (Seville Ave.) to get around it.

Laguna Dominguez Trail

Green Line to El Camino College Bike Route

August, 2017 by peggjeff

https://youtu.be/hIzijWhosKk

Not scenic, but flat and functional cycling travel commute route from nearby Metro Green Line Station Crenshaw to El Camino College or Alondra Park. But no lights and likely not a safe night travel.

Santiago Creek Trail

Nice Trail

August, 2017 by lrtshows

Started off at the end of Broadway at the main place Mall, all the way to Collins in Orange.

I probably only saw like 2-3 homeless people, other than that it's a very nice trail. I'll definitely do this again.

San Gabriel River Trail

great for training

August, 2017 by jenlizcano

Perfect for logging long miles, I usually start at the Santa Fe dam as the water, shade and bathrooms make it a perfect starting/end point! Going up to Azusa Canyon you can continue past where the trail ends to get some climbing feet if needed.

Orange Line Bike Path

Fun easy ride

August, 2017 by jenlizcano

Only downside is the amount of stopping at lights for major streets. You can add some quick mileage if you do the Balboa Park loop once or twice (about 7 miles each loop). Water is scarce on the trail itself but Balboa Park is a good pit stop. I like to park at Canoga Station and leave from there

San Gabriel River Trail

Ugly trail

July, 2017 by sn_livingston

This trail is only good for avid cyclers who just need a long, flat route for training and logging miles.
If you want a nice scenic trail for a bike ride, avoid this trail. It follows a giant dry concrete causeway/canal with homeless encampments and trash everywhere, then thru a power plant.
