Coyote Creek Bikeway

Much improved trail

December, 2018 by russell18

Many repaved sections make this a nice trail. From the north end at Foster, it is possible to go up Carmanita to the Whittier Greenbelt Trail, or to Stage Road and the rest of Coyote Creek. It would be nice to see a complete trail to Whittier someday.

Tracks at Brea Trail

This is an awesome biking trail for beginners

Arroyo Seco Bike Path

Arroyo Seco Bike Path

November, 2018 by cywarren0514

The ride is pleasant and paved with few cracks. You are at the bottom of a wash with some garbage along the path.

There are many trees, and notable architecture in the bridges and homes.

Overall it is a decent outing.

Los Angeles River Trail

Nice Ride Along the LA River

October, 2018 by elvis45687

This bike trail is a great ride, however, as of the date of this review, parts of it are under construction and closed. It's best to catch this trail at the south end near the San Fernando/Figueroa intersection as it will give you the best ride before hitting a trail closure at Colorado Blvd. You will not be able to ride all the way through to Griffith Park. The northern Griffith Park leg of the trail is open, but much of it detoured away from the LA river as this part of the trail is officially closed (but accessible from a broken chainlink fence).

The trail has it's fair share of homeless folks scattered about, but they are harmless. There are some cafes along the southern end of the trail that caters to the people both riding bikes and walking the trail.

Arroyo Seco Bike Path

Cleaned Up

October, 2018 by elvis45687

This is a nice short trail and ideal for families with small children. There is a park at the trail entrance and adjacent to the path. The homeless encampment situation has for the most part been cleaned up, but you will find a few homeless folks here and there...but overall safe.

San Diego Creek Trail

nice rest areas

October, 2018 by apvalerius

This trail has some rest areas near the eastern terminus. The best-looking one IMO is west of the East Yale Loop exit.

Despite Wikipedia: The San Diego Creek bicycle path connects major points such as Newport Beach, University of California, Irvine, Boomers, Colonel Bill Barber Park, Irvine Civic Center, The Crossroads Shopping Center, Woodbridge High School, Woodbridge Community Park, Atria Senior Residential Area, Windrow Community Park, Irvine Medical Complex, and ultimately, Irvine Spectrum Center.

The trail actually ends at the 133 toll road. East of the Alton Parkway exit there's just a lonely mile with no exits and a guardrail at the end. At least the Alton Parkway exit is only 1 mile west of the Irvine Spectrum Center, so you're not on Alton Parkway EastBound for too long.

Pacific Electric Inland Empire Trail

PET

September, 2018 by reddvl1974

I usually stay in Rancho. I'm still trying to get in shape lol. The ride towards Fontana is horribly bumpy. But I like it better than the trail to Claremont. Only because coming back is more uphill. I haven't ventured outside Rancho or Upland. The trail is definitely not set up right for any kind of riding. It should have been laid down with no separation cracks. I heard Claremont is not this way??

Pacific Electric Inland Empire Trail

Rialto-Rancho Cucamonga (5 stars), Upland-Montclair (2 stars)

June, 2018 by samsetabrige

This trail is pretty good from rialto to rancho but from upland to Montclair it's not that good. The trail is fairly easy and clean with OK scenic view. But there are quite a few breaks on the trail which one might find a little annoying.

Shoreline Pedestrian/Bicycle Path

Another great oceanfront trail

May, 2018 by lamborghiniman75

I bladed here while on vacation. Probably my favorite to blade on or is next to Manhattan beach. Great views including an island a a very Titanic looking boat.

Santa Ana River Trail

nice trail

May, 2018 by jjensen04

All homeless gone! Rode to beach twice last week from Orange! We enjoy this trail!

Santa Ana River Trail

The trail is now open 4/8/18

April, 2018 by znkfrnk

Tried heading for the beach today. The trail was open. All the homeless are gone and they put up fences in all the areas the homeless were camping out. I went to Moon Park and it was clear all the way. There were my smiling cyclist on the trail. Spring is here and the trail is clear. See all you kids out there.
