The river is nice if you can find it! Like others have mentioned, this area is in a constant state of flux. Many of the marked trails are either nonexistent, sandy washes from flooding, or dead end into bamboo thickets. The sand really slows your progress, and the vegetation makes it very hard to get your bearings once the app says you're off route. We found the river eventually by listening for the people already there. 15" is the deepest water I found, but most is around 4". We waded up the river for about a half mile to a supposed connector trail because I thought it would be more scenic than backtracking, but it was a waste of energy. Bamboo has completely choked the banks out, including any paths that don't get near daily use. The groups on the water were clustered near Etiwanda Ave, once we rounded the first bend there was no one around.

Can definitely push a jogger stroller through the riverbed trails (some parts it’s way too sandy) Not super crowded

Since the last flooding it manages to change everything in the river bottom encluding the trails. So don't be surprised if you are having trouble locating the trails. water flows with the least resistance.

The river is very scenic and worth visiting. Bring shorts or water shoes or the like as to follow this trail you will need to cross a wide river. Some of the trails on alltrails are certainly mismarked here, or else they have been washed out and overgrown. There are also many other trails which are not shown. This makes for a somewhat confusing mess even with the app open here. Caution is advised while navigating. Other than that this area feels relatively safe and relaxing. Not much incline. Some soft sand, so wheelchairs wouldn’t be advised in those areas. Quite a few equestrians on a saturday

My favorite place. Flat wide trails lots of sand and can be dusty. Lots of shade. Great parking

I went down on the sandy/dirt trail. Only saw one horseback rider but also saw a coyote. The bike trail was way too hot for me and my dogs

It's hard to find the water. wish i had a trail map when i go. the place is huge! i see pictures of people Down by the water on other sites, but i couldn't find a way to get there. my dogs would've loved to play in that water because it didn't appear deep at all. And its hot! and hardly any shade so wear a hat and sun glasses! and bring water.
