Lake Natoma Trail

All tho I only went 6 mile on this trail it was nice and fun, Beautiful view and nice people on the trail.

Castaways Trail

Castaways always a great ride

November, 2020 by ivmsy4zkye

Most locals consider this part of the ten mile loop - called fondly the Back Bay Loop. This section runs behind Expensive houses that overlook the water and is a great place to walk your dog.

Upper Bay Trail

Salt and Sea water meet

November, 2020 by ivmsy4zkye

Wonderfully enjoyable ride around the Back Bay where salt and fresh water meet. Usually quiet, horses and people seeking to stay healthy are what you will find on this lovely trail that connects to a wide variety of other trails (Back Bay loop, San Diego Creek and others) - yes the path is uneven in one specific spot- it is clearly marked - uneven - so slow down and be patient and you will be fine. As far as no bikes, as one other rider commented - I have ridden my pedal assist bike on it many many times as well as the surrounding trails and never had an issue. If you have seen signs otherwise it's time to appeal the decision. However it may be due to the horses and ebike riders (throttles only) that ride excessively fast. May be best to advocate for a speed limit rather than a bike type. Best to avoid busy times when strollers abound, but most on this trail know to walk to the side. There is a free parking lot adjacent to the nature center. The whole loop is ten miles and a terrific ride mostly off streets.

Laguna Creek Trail

Nice Trail

November, 2020 by mrxiong14

It a nice trail for the family I took my electric board there and it was fun.

Shoreline Pedestrian/Bicycle Path

Great Beach Ride with pretty skyline view.

November, 2020 by ivmsy4zkye

I've ridden this trail 2x. It's a nice break from the Huntington Beach ride - my favorite as it has bike and ped lanes that are separate. Just a caution, when the fog rolls in, it can be chilly breeze in non summer months, so pack a light jacket if you ride over 8mph. If you ride it to the Queen Mary the bike lane can be a bit confusing when going over the bridge - you do not enter the traffic lane - so if that is where you are - look again for the bike only lane, on the lower south side of the bridge. Also when you go through seaport village area - it can be crowded and touristy, easy to avoid by staying on the outskirts. Otherwise slow a bit and watch for tourists that may step in front of you. Ride on to the south and pick up some lanes through the canals for a longer ride. Enjoy!

Sacramento River Parkway Trail

scooter riders need to check this out

November, 2020 by savana350

This trail is perfect for those who are scooter riders. This trail is smooth, long and a few curves and little hills here and there. There are hardly any pedestrians or bike riders. My husband and I recently bought scooters and have been looking for somewhere we can get some speed and just cruise without all the traffic. Not the most scenic. You can jump off the trail in spots and take a break.

Santa Ana River Trail

Great Ride!

November, 2020 by afortega77

We did the Northern section of the trail. Started in San Bernardino off of Waterman Ave and rode to the end of trail in Jurupa Valley. The trail is very clean, there was a good amount of other riders and runners. The bad thing is that you are under the sun most of the ride. There were a few homeless people but we did not feel unsafe. Total miles from San Bernardino to Jurupa Valley and back was just shy of 40miles.

Merced River Trail

Autumn on Merced River Trail

November, 2020 by arlon_tl

Yes as described previously, after 5 miles the road is reduced to-a single track, or foot trail. The River is irresistible in its beauty, worth the trip. The old Railroad bed has experienced many Rock slides over the lay 70 years with no Matinence preformed. You will walk your bike plenty. It’s a great hiking trail.

Aliso Creek Riding and Hiking Trail

Amazing Nature Experience

November, 2020 by damon.carr

What a joy to find this trail - it's close enough to my home I can bike to it. Getting out into nature does something to calm the mind.

Santa Ana River Trail

long and easy

November, 2020 by bschoens151

I did about 9 miles near Huntington Beach. The good part of the trail is that long and unobstructed. You never have to cross a street. The bad part is that it is dam ugly.

California Coastal Trail (Half Moon Bay Coastside Trail)

Simply the best

November, 2020 by davidgordon144

Spectacular views! My favorite trail by far. Clean, safe and fun. Perfect day trip for a quick cheap family getaway.

Ventura River Trail

Update

October, 2020 by kampfgregory

The old Petro Chem plant which is pictured in the main photo is now (Oct. 2020) being cleaned up. The area is almost cleared and cleaned. What an improvement. Time for a new feature photo.
