State Route 56 Bike Path

Great but a bit loud

April, 2021 by glennaclawson

The 56 freeway is loud but the views of the hills and valleys on the south side of the bike path are great.

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

San Diego River Trail

Nice ride, careful on the west end

March, 2021 by fattypros

Parked on hotel circle place, plenty of room. The trail is a little gravely until past the ball fields, afterwards it’s good quality until you get closer to the dog beach. The asphalt is a little broken up and bumpy, plus there are many folks walking their dogs and some of them don’t know how to share the bike path. All in all, a good ride.

Mission Bay Bike Path

Best way to enjoy

March, 2021 by glennaclawson

We went midday during the week and there was very little congestion or foot traffic to avoid. Recommend starting at northeast side, and going as far as the southwest side then return. The full round trip takes you over two bridges which provide beautiful views but traffic is heavy along the western side of the bay. Also recommend doing the fiesta island loop as part of the ride. The views of the bay, the sun, the gentle breeze on the water, what San Diego is all about.

Huntington Beach Bicycle Trail

ocean views- start early on weekends

March, 2021 by tscal1234

We started at the North end of the trail (Boca Chico State Park) at 9am on a Saturday and rode south. Nice ocean views. We also saw a lot of container ships. Fun to ride past the dog beach. As you go into Huntington Beach, the path becomes crowded but still enjoyable. This trail links to the Santa Ana River trail (an additional 30 mile bike path). We enjoyed stopping in Boca Chico on the way back at the beach cafes for the live music.

Santa Ana River Trail

Saturday ride

March, 2021 by tscal1234

We started at Boca Chico star Park, rode down the beach trail 8 miles, then connected at this trail. We rode about about 10 miles then turned around. Clean, away from roads/traffic and not busy. I would ride this for exercise more than the scenery. We will be back to try the entire trail a

Peters Canyon Trail

Peters Canyon Bike Trail

March, 2021 by scott524

The multi-year construction for the stretch from Como Channel to Warner seems almost complete. Indeed I can now ride from Warner on the new stretch to the Como Channel itself. Unfortunately there are two locked gates on either side of the channel itself, even though the last small segment looks complete. Indeed, sometimes one of the gates is left open, and so it’s complete except for getting through the remaining gate. I have not been able to find out the opening date; does anyone have that info?

Bonita Canyon Trail

Great Hike...not anymore!

February, 2021 by h3pgcrfwh9

This use to be a great hike and trail. But people have decided that their graffiti looked good here and ruined the scenery.

Aliso Creek Riding and Hiking Trail

Amazing ride on lovely Aliso

February, 2021 by melbadunn

My husband and I just finished this ride today. It was our first time on this bike path and we will definitely go back. Each turn on the trail provided a new experience and a beautiful view of something. Ducks and Canadian geese along the creek, small waterfalls, egrets fishing for their breakfast, lots of earthy woodsy smells. We started on the Laguna Niguel and rode all the way to Cook’s Borner and back.
