This is a fantastic out and back bike ride with gorgeous views. I actually started at RAT Beach in Torrance and ended in Will Rogers State Park near Malibu. You must maneuver around Marina del Rey and get back onto the bike path. I believe it was about a 44-mile ride. Beautiful areas except for the dirty Venice area. A lot of nostalgia but a lot of homeless people as well. I will definitely do this one again!

I live in the neighborhood... this path is convenient for my daily walk. Love that it's never packed with too many walkers, joggers, bikers... makes me feel like I am away from it all. I walk from Peck park to the airport which is usually 4 miles round trip .... or sometimes I opt to walk around the lake along side the golf course and til I hit Live Oak, turn around and that's 3 miles. There are times I have done it all and you hit about 6 miles. Very versatile and I have made friends. I love taking photos there, too... it's my spot. ❤️

This beach ride can't be beat, there is an established bike path the whole way, and we didn't have to wrestle with cars or too many pedestrians. It's easy to lose track of how long the ride is when the ocean is right alongside you the entire way.

This is a great local beach bike trail from Redondo through Marina Del Rey. Watch the surfers and beach goers in all types of weather enjoying the beach while you get a wide and smooth cement trail ride.

I ran about 2 miles of this trail (each way, out and back) from the southern end of the construction closure in Riverside. At least in this section, the trail is built alongside or on top of a sewer main, and my run was punctuated by regular mouthfuls/lungfuls of sewer gas. For almost a mile just north of Van Buren the trail runs a gauntlet between two high chain link fences protecting a sewage treatment plant on one side and the section of the river that the plant dumps into on the other. I'm hoping another section of the trail is better; I won't be on this one again.

Went yesterday and it was very nice. The flowers, squirrels, and hawks were awesome. There were four of us with one who is not in good shape, but she did pretty well. However, on the way back she had to push bike at times because she was fatigued. The only negative was that I had the feeling that parts of the trail were used by homeless people and some drug addicts. I would not allow my daughter to ride this trail alone. Overall, beautiful scenery and nice ride.

One of my favorite trail for easy runs

Beautiful day for a walk along the Santa Ana River Trail. The trail will be closed Monday through Friday until 2017 for the 2 miles between Martha McLean Park and Ryan Bonaminio Park but is still open on the weekends all the way from Norco to Colton. Lots of bicyclists, walkers, and dog walkers share the trail. It is paved all the way.

The Santa Ana River Trail is closed between Martha McLean Park and Ryan Bonaminio Park Monday through Friday and is only open all the way through on the weekends. The sections that are open are fine however for walking during the week.

Perfect day for a walk along the orange groves with lush greenery and perfect temperatures. Just another day in paradise.

The Eastern most part of the Santa Ana River Trail is quite nice. Most of the trail is in good shape (a little "slopy/shelfy", but quite nice for dry forest area). It was not affected by the recent fires. The beginning and ending of my track correspond to parking areas on either Glass Road or Hwy 38. I would say this part is more consistently pretty verses Glass Road to Angelus Oaks, though the whole thing is worth while. Lots of bikers love this trail. I'm a hiker.

Awesome trail

So if you are looking to get outside and are really in a pinch, this will work for you. It is part of the Santa Clarita Paseo System. These are all paved paths along the Santa Clara River and it's tributaries. If you are riding your bike it is perfect and you really can go anywhere in the entire city. The down side is that if you are looking to get in a quick walk or hike, be ready for noise, bikes, dogs, trash, and everything else that comes with suburbia. The one saving grace is that the river is mostly undisturbed and filled with wildlife. There are small spots where you can take some single track use trails and poke around a bit. Sadly though when you do come across a group of curious rabbits like I did, there is some guy on a bike that comes flying by before you can get your camera out.

You will need a bicycle to fully enjoy this path. Yes, often you'll see pedestrians but they should be paying attention to the 'bikes only' markings posted everywhere. It has amazing ocean views and should be completed at least once. Avoid the summer months if you don't want to constantly dodge tourists.

It has been a few years now since the last time I did this one. I actually went all the way to San Pedro at Point Ferman. This ride offers some beautiful ocean views and rugged coastline. Most days you can see Santa Catalina!

This Bike trail is just amazing. Not many bikers on this trails. I live only 5 minutes away from here so its even better. The lake at the start of the trail is just Beautiful. I always go there when I am biking on this trail. You can sit there in the park looking at the lake, and you'll see mountains in the background. What a wonderful setting.! 5 Stars for this Awesome trail.

Love this trail. great scenery with different types of tracks. nice climbs and descents.

Very nice bike trail, smooth and easy with minimal usage. Enjoy your ride through Legg Lake past the El Monte Airport and end at Emerald Park.

Great trail for cyclist beginners to your more avid cyclist. Safest place to be for base miles. No cars to hit you. There can be some homeless people living in the overpasses. But they won't bother you. Usually in Anaheim to Santa Ana. Good head wind close to the beach for resistance training.

Great trail for those who like a flat topo to ride on. It's approx 70 miles round trip from end to end (Corona to Huntington Beach). If you want base miles without worrying about being hit by a car on the street this is what you're looking for. Gets a little crowded on Weekends. Also try to ride with a buddy there have been reports of bike jacking on the trail but I believe they caught someone. Still be aware if you have a funny felling of someone stay away of pull out a knife. I have had no problems and have ridden this trail over 1000 miles. Good strong headwinds and tailwinds just depends on what way you're headed

There are numerous different sections of this trail which can be done as loops or out and backs. The sections can be combined for longer rides. If you are new to the area, park at the turnout 1/4 mile past 7 Oaks restaurant on Rt.38. Ride down Middle Control fire road. About 2/3 of the way down there will be an entry point on your right. You can enter here and do a single track out and back. The trail will cross three creeks. The trail exits at Glass Rd. Across Glass Road is another long section of single track which starts (ends) across the street from the South Fork campground.
For a nice 3 to 4 hour loop, park at turnout. Ride down Middle Control all the way to the bottom. It becomes paved and is 7 Oaks Road. Stay on 7 Oaks Road. After several miles it will fork. 7 Oaks road to the left, Glass Road to the right. Stay on 7 Oaks Road and it turns to a dirt fire road for a beautiful ride that runs along the creek. It will lead up to Rt.38 where the single track begins. It will be well marked with an info. board. Ride the single track which will exit at Glass rd. Cross Glass road and ride another section which will exit at Middle Control. Ride back up to car. This ride has at least 1 hour of straight single track riding through the mountains.
Another option is to ride over to the restaurant/post office and take the fire road back there. There will be a marked entry point by a bench and big rock. Drop down. At the bottom you can go left to find other unmarked entry points for future reference, but the ride is to your right. Enjoy the single track and you will exit out about 1/3 of the way down Middle Control Road. Either ride up fire rd. to car or ride down to combine single track section mentioned above.
Warning: There are a few points in the trail where even though it can be ridden, it's a long way down so you might want to hike a bike.

Great straight road for road biking or just a walk.
