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 ¿¿

Deer Creek Bike Path

Deer Creek Bike Path

January, 2024 by thejake91739

I've lived my entire sixty-eight years in the Inland Empire, the last forty-three in Rancho Cucamonga, and I must say I was absolutely stunned to recently discover that the black top running alongside the flood control channel is now on TraiLink and is called Deer Creek Bike Path (even though there are absolutely no signs anywhere designating that name to the path).

Since no one had yet to submit a review or photo, I felt compelled to do so in the hope some naive bicyclist does not set their sights on this path.

First of all, this is/was essentially a service road for the flood control channel, but the city slapped some yellow paint down the center of it and decided to call it a bike path. OK, Rancho, kudos for the thought and semi-effort, but this trail leaves quite a bit to be desired as a "bike path". Deer Creek Concrete Flood Control Channel Pedestrian Path might be a better name. I was the only person on a bike (for good reason), and in terms of pedestrians/dog walkers I only encountered four on the entire 9.6 mile round trip.

Most of it is not practical as a bike path because of the many interruptions caused by busy major thoroughfares. As a result, you then have to get on a sidewalk or that busy road to get to a traffic signal in order to safely cross and then double back to the trail. (Check out the map and you'll see what I mean.)

I would say this path is most practical for and appreciated by the residents north of Church Street as it provides a couple miles of recreational opportunity thanks to paths connecting their neighborhoods to the trail. From my experience, that's primarily dog walkers and residents getting their steps in.

North of Base Line Road it provides access to The Bark at Central Park and the city's crown jewel bike path, the Pacific Electric Inland Empire Trail (which I ride a couple of times a week between Fontana and Upland). The portion of trail north of Church Street all the way to the endpoint at Highland Avenue (which is closed to cars!) is safe, but the trail has about a million filled cracks which makes for a bumpy ride.

South of Church Street, FUGHEDDABOUDIT! It's a joke and not worth your time as it passes behind businesses, warehouses, apartments, and the unhoused and their scattered garbage. Same bumpy, cracked trail plus debris such as sand and tree twigs, plus I didn't feel especially safe as I pedaled through the less affluent south part of town.

So bikers, don't bother! This is definitely not a destination bike ride, but perfect for the nearby residents to stretch their legs or to access the dog park or the Pacific Electric Trail (a true bike path!).

Coyote Creek Bikeway

What a shame

January, 2024 by roncrowell_tl

I ride the short one from la Mirada to la Habra 2.5 miles and to get to the southern trail I would have to ride over 2 miles down Alondra blvd just to get to the second half. Wish the county would connect the two.

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!

San Gabriel River Trail

Interesting bike trail.

October, 2023 by mark0053

We started at the north end of the trail and followed it down by the dam to the south. There is a lot of gravel pits in this area and gravel/rock processing plants so not much to look at. It's like so many paved bike trails in Los Angeles that follow a dried up river of concrete. We were staying in the Pomona area so we didn't want to travel too far for our ride. We can now say we did this trail and won't need to return.

Rio Hondo River Trail

Disappointed in this one.

October, 2023 by mark0053

I always try not to get my excitement up too much when riding in Los Angeles. After all it's a huge city with a lot of dried up rivers. We started at the north end of this trail and road about half of it before turning around. There was one small area of some scenery at the north end but the further south we got the worse it got. Lots of homeless encampments and trash alone the trail which is so sad. The waterway was dried up in October so on one side you have a concrete basin and the other side either homeless cities or industrial buildings. I can now mark this one off my to-do list for sure.

Great Trail.

It’s a nice trail just need to make it connect to the part in Hemet or possibly make a north / south trail it can connect to for the cities of Perris and Murrieta!

Escondido Creek Bike Path

sketchy

September, 2023 by blueboxparts

Tried this path with my wife. Lots of homeless people discussing where to get hypodermic needles sitting in the path.

Mission Bay Bike Path

Wonderful fun path

September, 2023 by barbscondo

We have been staying at Mission Bay RV Park (great place) and the bike path is out the front of the RV park. We have ridden it 5 times in the last few days-both directions and then wandering off the path into different areas and the beach boardwalk. Really nice during the weekdays and more crowded on the weekends. The speed limit is 8 mph !! And most riders honor that. Honestly, that's fast enough there is so much fun stuff to look at and the people watching is wonderful. Beautiful houses/water/boats/kiteboarders and on and on.
