Scenic trail is too narrow for the volume of mixed use. Newport beach should widen the path and separate pedestrians and bicycle et al traffic as Huntington Beach has done on the bluffs portion of its trail. Elated to see the beach path center striped and signs reminding all users to share the path. In HB pedestrians are given the right of way but fail to look before they leap!
We started at the north end of the trail and followed it down by the dam to the south. There is a lot of gravel pits in this area and gravel/rock processing plants so not much to look at. It's like so many paved bike trails in Los Angeles that follow a dried up river of concrete. We were staying in the Pomona area so we didn't want to travel too far for our ride. We can now say we did this trail and won't need to return.
I always try not to get my excitement up too much when riding in Los Angeles. After all it's a huge city with a lot of dried up rivers. We started at the north end of this trail and road about half of it before turning around. There was one small area of some scenery at the north end but the further south we got the worse it got. Lots of homeless encampments and trash alone the trail which is so sad. The waterway was dried up in October so on one side you have a concrete basin and the other side either homeless cities or industrial buildings. I can now mark this one off my to-do list for sure.
This is a very fun trail to ride up and down on! Just remember to slow down for the walkers!
It’s a nice trail just need to make it connect to the part in Hemet or possibly make a north / south trail it can connect to for the cities of Perris and Murrieta!
Tried this path with my wife. Lots of homeless people discussing where to get hypodermic needles sitting in the path.
We have been staying at Mission Bay RV Park (great place) and the bike path is out the front of the RV park. We have ridden it 5 times in the last few days-both directions and then wandering off the path into different areas and the beach boardwalk. Really nice during the weekdays and more crowded on the weekends. The speed limit is 8 mph !! And most riders honor that. Honestly, that's fast enough there is so much fun stuff to look at and the people watching is wonderful. Beautiful houses/water/boats/kiteboarders and on and on.
We are staying at Mission Bay RV Park and riding the Mission Bay Bike Path which is right outside the RV Park. This is a little offshoot off the path. It runs into the Rose Canyon Bicycle Path and onto others I think. I see it mainly as a place to get from A to B of you need to. Not a Path I would ride again for pleasure. This first portion a little sketchy with some homeless campers but no real problem.
Great 20-mile biking trail from down to Oceanside beach and back, safe, clean, and well marked easy route and a variety of views.
Great Bike and Running Trail in Brea, clean, safe, and easy. Wish it was longer. I also learned something new it has a lower and upper section with stairs and a bike wheel pathway, I hadn't seen before...pretty cool.
