Blue Hole, 50 foot cliffs, easy hike-bike, two river crossings, 3 bridges This is an easy, hike in a suburban setting suitable for bikes and strollers. This portion is entirely cement. It has 2 bridges crossing the river. The first one actually crosses just below where the North San Gabriel joins the South San Gabriel. The second crosses the North San Gabriel near the end of the hike.
Loved it. Ran from parking at damn down huge in line to spill way. 5 miles each way. Mostly paved. Some dirt. Easy to follow except a bit in middle through a neighborhood. Saw deer. Prettiest near dam on western end.
Easy path. Majority paved. Started at San Gabriel park and did the Randy Morrow trail almost to Lake Georgetown. Has maps and parks along the way. Definitely in the city but saw lots of wildlife including deer.
Beautiful wide paved trail through tree covered walkways. Honeysuckle filling the air, wild flowers abound, very well maintained park, peaceful, not too crowded
Great trail for whole family.
Tried to head west on the trail from the Blue Hole trailhead, but a giant Cottonmouth caused us to change our plans. We headed East toward the Winfred Bonner Trail. It was okay. Mostly sidewalk next to a busy road. A few peeks of the river along the trail. The trail to San Gabriel Park was closed because the bridge was wiped out by the Memorial Day flood.
I've run this trail a handful of times with a double jogging stroller and it is a great workout with great scenery. The kids love the animal tracks that cross the trail, and the cliffs are beautiful. If you don't mind going "off road", it's actually 5 miles of trail and path.
