San Francisquito Creek Trail

A VERY PLEASANT RIDE

October, 2021 by rice2go0712

I rode this trail and portions of some of its connectors and it was a lovely ride. I am strictly a recreational rider and these trails meet my needs. They run parallel to what passes for a river in Southern California. The trail is VERY well maintained and marked. It is essentially flat. There was zero trash and graffiti. On one side of the trail is the riverbed and on the other side there are some residential areas, parks, and access to commercial areas if you want to stop. You can go for miles and miles if you hook up with one of the connectors and are so inclined. There are
lovely views of the distant mountains and even a glimpse of Six Flags Magic Mountain. There are different places where it can be accessed. I picked one that was an established trailhead in a retail area with plenty of vehicle traffic so you do not feel that your car is out in the wilderness. But as soon as I hit the trail, I felt like I was away from the city and in a peaceful place. It can be very hot in the Santa Clarita Valley in the summer. There is of course a breeze along the river that varies in intensity. I was there early in the day and it was not an issue. I had to drive some distance to get there and it certainly was worth.

Arroyo Seco Bike Path

great commuting path

September, 2021 by 1raulc

Just moved to Lincoln Heights and love this path. I use it to bike to work in South Pas. The path is quite clean! I bike in the morning and in evening after work. I usually see at least 1 or 2 other people biking, and a handful more at the northern end of the trail--esp. runners. There are some homeless camps. I probably wouldn't ride this path after dusk.

Chandler Bikeway

love the trail, watch out for stupid people

September, 2021 by californiaman52

One side is for bicycles, the other side for pedestrians. The pedestrians seem to wander all over the place. Point out the signs and they yell at you. very disappointing, have to dodge people all the time. Stay in your lane seems simple...

Arroyo Seco Bike Path

Dirty

August, 2021 by dennisc5000

It’s just an ok path, but what makes it bad is there are lots of homeless and they put their carts and trash in the middle of the path. 2 stars only because it has the potential to be good if it was cleaned up.

Pacific Electric Inland Empire Trail

new to biking

July, 2021 by marliapjess

I really like this trail. I have only made it from Cactus to Cherry Ave. But it seems like a safe and easy ride so far. You’ll see some homeless people peppered throughout Fontana area but in all there are a lot of people walking, running and biking.

San Gabriel River Trail

disappointing

June, 2021 by allana_tl

I hadn’t ridden this trail for 10-15 years; it has gotten cluttered with homeless camps, crowded with fast training groups crowding my lane, and aggravated with fast and slow ebikes and scooters- I’ll not ride it again.0

Whittier Greenway Trail

great bike ride

May, 2021 by trustkas

Great place to walk and ride. Well kept up and pretty flowers along the way.

Pacific Electric Inland Empire Trail

beautiful trail

May, 2021 by mlehill11

Beautiful, clean, well maintained, wide trail. Much of the way you have to option to be on a paved path or compact gravel. We went on a mild weathered Saturday afternoon and the trail was not busy at all. There are several intersections with lights you have to go through but it’s all very safe. Plenty of water fountains and rest break locations. Most of the trail abuts the backside of residential areas. Very little shade from sporadic trees. We felt super safe. Our GPS clocked in a little more that 18 miles (20).

San Gabriel River Trail

Downey to Seal Beach

April, 2021 by christianalbrecht65

I did this trail for the first time & decided to start in Downey. Heads up, if you’re not a resident of Downey they charge $5 for parking. It is a decent trail to ride. Very similar to the Los Angeles River Trail but much cleaner. I still would love to start in Azusa, ride to Seal Beach & back to complete a metric Century.
