Compton Creek Bike Path Description

The Compton Creek Bike Path crosses Compton along the east bank of its namesake creek, offering access to precious open space for the urban neighborhoods along the way. Compton Creek itself is a tributary of the Los Angeles River, and the majority of it is channelized to provide flood control protection to the area.

The northern section of the path is a paved trail extending from El Segundo Boulevard south through residential neighborhoods of Compton to Greenleaf Boulevard. This segment provides access to schools, churches, parks and a civic center, and two Los Angeles Metro light rail stations (Blue Line) are not far away. An equestrian trail used by several clubs and individual riders from Compton and adjacent communities runs along the west bank of the creek.

A shorter section of paved trail exists farther south along the creek, but it is separated from the northern portion by the light rail line, Gardena Freeway (State Route 91) and the east fork of Compton Creek. Access to this southern segment is limited to a few large streets, and the trail ends north of the confluence of Compton Creek and the Los Angeles River at E. Del Amo Boulevard. This stretch of the creek has a natural bottom and more waterside vegetation, so trail users can spot herons, egrets and other wildlife at certain times of the year.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking and restrooms for the Compton Creek Bike Path are available adjacent to Washington Elementary School at Compton Creek Natural Park in Compton (941 W. Cressey Street).

Starting from El Segundo to Compton Blvd the trail is very dirty road has many cracks and lots of broken glass. Pop both tires one with a piece of glass the other had a thorn stuck in it. Only made it to Alondra and trail was getting better.
