This trail is accessable year round and has the most flowing water after the mountain snow melts in the spring months. With flat level ground and the occasional camel hump it's highly recommended for cyclist and wheelchairs. This trail is a paved trail with popular usage for cyclist , runners and walkers. It would even be suitable for those in wheelchairs. USDA Forest Service Adventure Pass is required.

its long trail. be prepared and bring water and portable charger because once your phone dies, it wont get any juice anywhere. there was a golf course near whitter that helped as pit stop. very good workout.

I love running here. It's pretty popular with walkers, bikers, and runners. Paved path that extends down to Long Beach. Excellent if you have long runs, particularly for marathon training. The trail can get pretty hot. There is an entrance with parking and bathrooms on Huntington Dr. between Duarte and Azusa. From there you can go north for about 3 miles where it ends on the side of 2 near a residential area, or go south for the rest of the trail. Good amount of flat stretches and slow rolling hills.

This trail is paved asphalt suitable for biking, scootering, or using a stroller. Since it's completely paved, little kids would be perfectly fine walking this trail. Elevation is minimal. This trail meanders with the West Fork San Gabriel River, and at various spots, you can go down to the river to cool your feet, or even swim in it We got to the trail around 11am and there were LOTS of people already enjoying the river. You can also fish at the river, catch and release only. My son caught 3 small trouts, not quite sure if they were rainbow, cutthroat or golden trouts. Forest Ranger said fishing is better the further you go up the river. There are also picnic tables along the trail. The trail is 6 miles to the Cogswell Reservior, and it parallels the River. I highly recommend this trail for a relaxing and fun day playing in the river. We would definitely go back again.
