It is a very nice path But you have to go early otherwise you will be avoiding people walking aimlessly across the path the entire time. And be sure to walk your bikes and a designated areas otherwise you will have police officers yelling at you. Beautiful scenery and a great work out otherwise.
Once you pass the marina, the path is pretty open so you can pick up some speed while riding your bike. You just have to be careful going up and down the little hills on the underpass
Lots of pedestrians and heavy traffic that slows down the ride to make it a casual ride; however the scenery is beautiful with the coastal views. To increase speed would recommend an early morning ride. The road is a mix of pavement and a few bumpy areas, predominantly flat for an easy ride. Would increase the star level if it were more strenuous, a longer ride, and traffic was better managed. Thank you for this trail.
It’s a great easy ride across Burbank. You have to be aware of families and people walking on the bike lane. People don’t pay attention.
Relatively flat and plenty of room on the road for passing. I calculated just under 11 miles from end to end. Beautiful trail.
Nice short, paved trail that ‘bridges’ or continues the Back Bay’ loop trail of a total of > 10 miles around the estuary. Panoramic views of the Back Bay to the West, South and East. Two look-outs at opposite ends, including a cliff-edge set of views along 90% of the trail. Some bark alternate sections and then a grand fan-ale down a 10 - 15% paved section that the Newport Beach City asks you to walk your bike down ( please yield to pedestrians if you ride ). You can street park at different ends, or better yet, ride from the YMCA.
Perfect trail to bring the kiddos to ride or walk.
Very chill to bike this trail. I did it early morning on weekdays . Wish it never ended
This is one of my favorite bike paths. The white fencing outlines this path well and the gentle slopes make it a fun ride. The surrounding mountains and hillsides are gorgeous just before sunset. Ample parking and restrooms at the southern end of the trail in Pleasant Valley Fields.
Great experience at Arroyo Simi !
I absolutely love walking on the Pacific electric trail. I am on it several times a week.
BUT there are no restroom facilities! The only one is at the trail hub....and that's it! What are we suppose to do? Not drink water while exercise? Pee in a bush on the side of the trail? There absolutely NEEDS to be restroom facilities along the trail.
This is definitely one of my favorite trails. It’s well maintained, safe and easy to park.
