Rincon Bike Trail

Bring ear plugs

January, 2024 by dmurphy52

This short trail is a bit of an engineering marvel. Smooth pavement, beautiful scenery, and because it is within feet (separated by an impressive and artistic barrier) of Highway 101, very LOUD. Good luck if you're trying to have a conversation with a fellow rider.

Nice small capacity parking lot at the southern end. Very safe for a family outing, though a bit of caution will be needed in the one street crossing in La Conchita. At the northern end there is a beautiful park, suitable for picnics, and with nice ocean overlooks.

I ride about 20 miles/day, and found the trail a bit short, and a bit too noisy. One of my brothers, who doesn't ride at all on a regular basis, and who is less sensitive to noise than I am, found the trail "perfect". And there you have it!

Nice Trail

My family and I came for the first time on a Sunday. Smooth ride and family friendly. Definitely obey the signs as stay on your lane. Would recommend this trail.

Ventura River Trail

Like Paris-Roubaix

September, 2023 by tomspeirce

Nice trail but when I rode it this summer a large section was still covered in gravel from last winter's rainstorms and mud/rockslides. Not sure if it's been cleaned yet but if you are on skinny tires be prepared.

Sierra Bike Trail

Excellent trail

September, 2023 by dave444

This is a nice rail-with-trail for getting around locally in the Lancaster/Palmdale area. A word of caution though - when going north and crossing Sierra Highway from west to east at Technology Drive (1/2 mile south of Rancho Vista Blvd/Avenue P) be sure to wait for the WALK signal, and don’t just rely on the green traffic signal for the cars. This is because traffic from the right (northbound traffic) doesn’t stop when the light is green for the traffic on Technology Drive.

From the southern end of the trail you can also connect to the Avenue S Bike Trail. This is a nice trail (which is not a rail-trail) that extends for several miles in an east-west direction (with a few gaps). There is also a gap of about 1.5 miles between the two trails.

Santa Barbara Beach Trail

Great views, good for families

Easy bike ride and nice walk for families.

Fillmore Bike Path

Not Good At All

August, 2023 by happybug1025

It was an awful trail path for walking or biking. Too many people taking up the whole path, too many unleashed dogs, and Fillmore residents loitering on path as well as off to the side of path creepily watching girls and woman while drinking beer. I felt extremely uncomfortable. Trash left all over and people don’t pick up after their dogs. I can tell you for sure that I will not take this oath trail again.

Arroyo Simi Bike Path

Great bike path

Distance is good and enjoyable sights

Los Angeles River Greenway

South Portion of Trail

November, 2022 by wfo163

On 06NOV2022 I chose to attempt a 7(ish) mile run along the LA river starting at the trail's terminus in Long Beach. The run took me from Golden Shore up to about Willow. Nearly as soon as the trail turns north from the trailhead the nature of this trail becomes apparent - This is not a safe trail for pedestrians. There are multiple campers, addicts, feces (human and otherwise), and piles of garbage all along the trail. It is an absolute human rights atrocity. Some of the campers have built decent sites off of the trail but most have built castles of garbage and some have built literal fortresses out of the riprap that is used along the river wall. Some of the people along that route were friendly enough and said hello as I passed. Others were not welcoming and a couple were down right threatening including one that tried to block my path and stop my run. This brings up perhaps the most dangerous part - there is no way to escape the trail should trouble happen. There is a high chainlink fence that runs between trail access. If a person finds themselves being chased or assaulted they cannot get away. This portion of this trail needs to be avoided if on foot. There were a lot of cyclists and perhaps this is an option if you are moving quickly, but even then this should only be attempted if part of a large group.

This trail has the potential to be awesome, but the current issues make it downright intimidating and dangerous.

Ballona Creek Bike Path

Rough Start - Great Finish

September, 2022 by andrewsantiago1

The views aren’t pretty when you leave out of the Culver City entrance to the trail, and it doesn’t particularly smell great either, but the views quickly get better, especially when you get closer to Playa De Rey beach. The beach itself is a sweet reward for a semi challenging, sometimes hilly ride. If you drive there, set your GPS to Syd Kronenthal Park for 4 hours of free parking. There’s also a rec center there with bathrooms and a fountain to refill your water bottle before your start. The entrance to the path is a steep slope, so save some energy for your exit back up it. Also, be mindful of what hour you head out as I encountered a large group of students on the path during school dismissal hours. The students were nice enough to clear a path (with some heavy bell ringing).

Arroyo Seco Bike Path

Dangerous Encounter with Homeless

September, 2022 by xtrsmith

I was on the Arroyo Seco Bike Path traveling east from LA towards South Pasadena on my bicycle commuting from work. There was some thick glass hidden in some dirt that caused my bicycle tire to be flatted with a loud, sharp sound. It felt like it was a booby trap intentionally causing bikes to have flat tires. I see a lot of broken glass and try to miss it. There seems to always be broken bottles and vandalism to intimidate residents from using the path.

My bike's flat tire brought me to a halt and some shirtless man approached me and asked me for fifty cents. He was walking right at me and appeared he was homeless. I felt I was in danger. I told him to stay back a few times.

This could be a great commuting and recreational pathway but it is unkept and littered with trash and encampments full of intimating homeless. A few weeks ago I saw a minivan on fire and like the other reviews on this website show that LA needs to get involved.

Browns Creek Bike Path

Browns Creek Bike Path Review

July, 2022 by championmobby

The trail itself is nice enough and the benches to the side are a major plus, but the little loose plant thorns on the trail made one of my tires flat. This path also had me crossing the street but there was no dedicated stop light for drivers and just had to wait for no cars to be around. Overall, won't be finding myself on this trail in the future.
