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.
Really great trail for families with kids.
There’s tons of homeless camper and some sleeping on the beach, but it didn’t bother me... over all it’s a good ride, especially the weather today !
Nice bike path..
Went this morning, it’s a nice bike path...
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.
Easy ride, and pleasant
I’ve been riding this trail a couple times a week since I found it. With very few interruptions or vehicle crossings, this is a great trail for settling in and peddling away.
I love the path from Ruth Carruthers park south to Seal Beach. Decided to add some miles and started at Santa Fe Springs Park. Park wasn’t open at 9 as published but opened soon. I couldn’t find an access point to the trail from the park, but a short walk on Telegraph led to an entrance (thanks, neighbor!). Here’s the rub: there’s a super friendly man in a Dodgers jersey that cruises around chatting up women. It didn’t bother me south of Bellflower but the path is not as well used further north. I was glad I was riding with someone. I advise against women riding alone north of Ruth Carruthers park. Maybe he’s just a super friendly nice guy but ladies be cautious.
There aren’t crosswalks for all of the road crossings so you have to go to the nearest intersection instead. Nice, flat trail that ends in a park and was an easy ride for the kids. Buildings near by have all kinds of industrial smells, so it’s not the nicest bike trail in the world, but it’s good for the area.
A sad trail in many ways, despite its occasional charms (especially the huge banks of wild fennel and bee balm). Many of our unhoused neighbors spend time on this trail, and it sometimes feels unsafe. There are awkward street crossings regularly. It disappears and reappears regularly. Not a fun trail because there are so many hazards.
We rode on Coyote Creek (CC) for the first time and it was a good trail. We started at the Long Beach marina on the San Gabriel River Trail and the signage prior to the CC connector was not very good. The Coyote Creek trail surface was good, but the trail seemed narrower than other trails in the region. The CC trail terminated at Foster Road, which was perfect for us, as we followed the well signed bike route to the Norwalk Metrolink station.
