This trail runs perpendicular to several main roads in the area so you'll have to cross traffic every mile or so, but the in between parts are lovely. There's a stream near part of it, bridges and the back of houses. You'll meet people walking their dogs and biking on here often. When you get to the parking lot, park right by the entrance. The lot is huge so if you head toward Torrence, you’re going through wrong way. Head behind the water park.Show more
