Unfortunately, there are many major intersections to cross that break up the ride, Adds time to your overall ride. Otherwise, it's a safe ride. 30 mile round trip.

Heavily trafficked. Lots of cars passing by and exhaust. Nice for a basic walk if it is close by.

The Orange line is a beautiful well kept bike trail. Long stretches with little shade at times.

Loved parts of the trail, but wasn't too pleased with the heavily trafficked areas. I parked at LAVC -- riding from here to Lake Balboa was great, a few traffic lights but not too bad. On another outing I started at Lake Balboa & headed towards Chatsworth, but I just wasn't feeling it. I'll try this again on a less trafficked day & time to see if I change my mind. Heavy car traffic & more traffic lights took away the enjoyment of the ride.

Are used to ride the trail all the time when it was first built. It had been maybe 5 to 8 years since I had been on this roadway. I’m very impressed today with the tree growth. Years ago you were riding out in the sun on this trail, and now you have shade almost all the way from Woodman to Sepulveda.

Good commuter trail but not much in the way of a scenic ride. Pretty well paved the whole way, but stop and go for traffic lights was frequent.
