Santa Ana River Trail

Citizen of San Bernardino County

July, 2024 by fosterarmy

New experience after all these years of cycling and blading. Went with family to ride bicycles. We start behind county records located at 222 Hospitality Ln. Too many homeless with dogs. A white dog chased us on the bike trail between county records and industrial buildings next door. It's worse on the weekends. Apparently, the homeless know that there is no security at night and on the weekends. Do not leave your car there.

San Luis Rey River Trail

Very nice trail

May, 2024 by p9jbzstx84

This is very easy and pleasant trail. Took my 8 year old on it today and he was able to finish the whole distance. We could not make it back as it was too much for him. We will definitely come back.

Peters Canyon Bikeway


May, 2024 by s6ng4kcdv4

This is one of my go to short and quick rides. I start from Valencia park in Jamboree and end at Peters Canyon trail head. It's a beautiful trail with a mild slope.


Walnut Trail

walnut trail

May, 2024 by s6ng4kcdv4

About 4 miles of paved trail from walnut to Sand canyon. Runs along metrolink railway and there is a park along the way if you want to take a break. I started from west point Irvine in Jamboree then took Peters Canyon from Bryan to Harvard and Walnut trail. It was 13.6 miles of nice relatively easy ride.

Escondido Creek Bike Path

Perfect for running/walking

April, 2024 by oliverjparado

I do my cardio workouts on this trail 4 days a week. Are there homeless? Yes. Could it be touched up and repaved a bit? Yes. Cleaner? Yes. What part of San Diego doesn’t these days? With the homeless, I don’t bother them and they don’t bother me, and they are few and far between. This trail is a key to my overall health and fitness. I don’t have to pay a monthly or annual membership fee to use it. It doesn’t close at 11pm, and it’s just outside my door. And the best part it’s free. I love it!

Huntington Beach Bicycle Trail (Coastal Trail)

Fun Oceanside Ride

April, 2024 by barbscondo

Rode this on a Wednesday. Wonderful path. One of the best we have been on because it is very wide and well marked. Some areas have separated pedestrian lanes which is always a bonus. We are 4-78 years olds on 3 Ebikes and one Etrike. We are always respectful of other riders and walkers. There were quite a few people using the path-enough to make it fun. Probably crowded on weekends. The bluff above the portion that is the Huntington Dog Beach was so great for watching all the dogs have a blast in the waves. This will be a repeat path in our travels.

Mission Bay Bike Path

Beware Ebikes banned

April, 2024 by barbscondo

We are 4-78 year olds on Ebikes. Have ridden this path last year. Today we were sitting at a picnic table having lunch and the park ranger/patrol stopped and told us we are not allowed on any part of the Mission Bay Bikepath. All is considered boardwalk. The whole path circling the bay. We had to leave thru the parking lot back to Mission Bay Rv Resort where we are staying. Sadly, we will not be coming here again.

Aliso Creek Riding and Hiking Trail

Aliso Creek

Aliso Creek Trail in the middle of beautiful Orange county. What a great bike path. Easy Breezy. Can connect to Santiago in the north and Laguna in the South.

Inland Rail Trail

homeless hang out

February, 2024 by therapyjulie

Between the poor maintenance of the asphalt and trying to dodge the homeless carts and random people walking through the trail, I’m not sure it’s the safest bike route I’ve ever taken. I started at the Escondido transit station and won’t be doing that again!

Mission Bay Bike Path

Scenic trail

January, 2024 by debb2002

I roller skated the trail today and it’s well maintained. I prefer an asphalt trail, but this was fine for skating on. A newer skater might struggle with the expansion joints and sand, but it was relatively smooth aside from that. Most people walking/biking etc were staying where they’re supposed to be, but every once and awhile you’ll get a “face in the phone” who you’ll have to navigate around. Enjoy ¿¿

Oceanfront Boardwalk

scenic but insanely crowded crowded on sunny weekends

November, 2023 by danno1dude

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!
